Veneto Villa Development Regents Park
The Veneto Villa is one of a set of exclusive architectural developments in Regents Park, London, for the Church Estate Commissioners.
Inspired by John Nash, the plan was to create a collection of new Villas, each one adhering strictly to the form of a specific Classical/traditional architectural style.
The Veneto Villa was built in the Palladian manner, drawing influence from the architecture of that region of Italy, displaying crisp Classical Roman ornamentation in a light and open setting.
The shell shown was carved by us as the central motif to a Classical architectural pediment forming the crest to the overmantle in the Drawing room. The ionic capitals are from a fireplace.
