Architects

Since its publication in 1897 Country Life magazine has featured many of the world's finest buildings and Country Houses designed and built by some of Great Britain's most noted architects. On this page we celebrate a collection of architects and landscape designers from 16th century to modern day. From the grandest designs of Sir John Vanbrugh and John Nash to the Parkland and gardens by Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton and the Country Estates by Norman Shaw, Edwin Lutyens, Oliver Hill, Clough Williams-Ellis and Phipps & Milne.

Country Life also holds a fascinating record of interiors, décor and furniture featuring the works of Robert Adam, a neoclassical architect, interior designer and furniture maker through to the Arts and Crafts Movement, works by William Morris and Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernism by designers such as Oliver Hill, Oswald Milne and Thomas Tait.
