Sir Basil Spence

Building Notes

In 1946 Basil Spence and Partners designed a house for Sydney W Brown in Kirkhill Braes, Dunbar. This was possibly the first commission for the newly formed practice. The Archive holds a preliminary design for the building which was constructed circa 1948-49.

Archive Details and Summary

The Sir Basil Spence Archive holds an undated presentation drawing for this project which is likely to have been drawn in 1946 because it gives the practice address as 16 Rutland Square, from where it moved the following year.

This text was written as one of the outputs of the Sir Basil Spence Archive Project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, 2005-08.
