Scope and Content Detail of ceiling rose above the staircase, No 2 Irvine Place, Stirling No 2 Irvine Place was built c.1835. It is an elegant Classical-style villa with a Greek Doric columned doorpiece, pilastered façade and a slated roof. The house is two-storeyed with a basement level concealed from view by a low wall and sloping site. This shows a ceiling rose which is constructed from cast plaster. The design features leaves curving to form a concentric circle with a hole in the centre to take the chain of a light fitting. The plasterwork has been painted white. Cast plasterwork ceiling roses are used as a focal point in the centre of a ceiling, or as a decorative disc to suspend a light fitting from. They are usually used in conjunction with elaborate cornices to create a rich overall design. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
