We were commissioned to undertake measured and condition surveys and produce historical reports on the significance of the 14 garden structures within the pleasure grounds of Dropmore Park in Buckinghamshire.
Dropmore House was designed by Samuel Wyatt between 1792-1795 for Lord Grenville.
The garden structures included a Grade I Listed Aviary, Italian Loggia and a Chinese tearoom.
The front elevation of the loggia was designed using the principles of Palladio’s doric order but omitting the triglyphs. The side elevation has an Ionic order. The decay seen in the marble columns shows how the use of marble externally can result in its disintegration.
