Hampstead Garden Suburb
Place From 1907
Henrietta Barnett formed a board of trustees to build this urban utopia following strict social principles: all classes accommodated, places of education provided, places for the handicapped and elderly, gardens with hedges, not walls, noise limited, shops etc. kept to the boundary and sales of alcohol prohibited. She chose Raymond Unwin to plan the estate and Edwin Lutyens as consulting architect.
On the picture source website the map is interactive, but visit external site for everything you need about the suburb. It is here we learn that "Lutyens' sketch for the landscaping was, as Dame Henrietta recalls, dashed off in a letter from Marseilles when he was en route for Delhi. At the western end of the Avenue is Lutyens' memorial to the Dame herself, a kind of classical wellhead." It is rumoured that Lutyens found Dame Henrietta a difficult client, and that he saw the Delhi commission as an escape from HGS. But perhaps he enjoyed designing her memorial.
