John Nash

Born in London. Notable works: Regent Street, Royal Opera Arcade and the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. Much of his work was for the Prince Regent but we've heard that Mrs Nash gave birth to an illegitimate daughter by the Prince. If true one wonders what that did to the client/architect relationship. Nash died at the home he designed for himself, East Cowes Castle on the Isle of Wight.

We've found a few other architects who built houses for themselves, listed at Geoffrey Darke.
