The Elements of Domestic Design

By Penty, Arthur J

The Architectural Press, Westminster, London, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 102 pages (complete). A placid copy of Penty's book on architectural design. This title is of particular interest for several reasons mostly because he used Hillway House in Ditchling for his illustration. Penty was a friend of many of the Ditchling artists and had decided to build a family home in the village. In 1923 he and his wife bought the Great Jointure field from Frank Brangwyn and Penty began the designs for the house which was not only to become their family home, but was also to encompass his principles of domestic design. Building began and a plaque was made with the date 1924, but some way into the project building work was stopped. Apparently Penty had seen one of the patients from Greyladies, the house almost opposite Hillway, which was at that time a nursing home for lepers. Penty decided that this was not a suitable environment for his family, and the house was left with just the foundations and low walls for quite some time, making a good playground and paddling pool for local children.In 1927 Penty sold the land back to Brangwyn, who then sold it to his friend A J Rowley, founder of the Rowley Gallery in London. The house was completed with Penty as the architect but with revisions in the design to take account of the fact that Rowley had 10 children. It was not finished until 1930 belying the date 1924 above the front door.The house forms the basis for many of the examples of vernacular design given by Penty in this book, using ‘primitive’ source material and basic forms to generate all the aspects of a domestic building’s design. The bricks for Hillway for example, were imported from Belgium, where they were still handmade to the smaller size that had been traditional in England until the introduction of mechanised methods of production. The boards of this copy are scruffy. They have storage wear about all edges, seams, corners. There is scuffing; there are handling marks. They are assured. Within, there are neat, pencilled annotations and notations throughout. Previous owner (Walgate and Elsworth Architects in Cape Town) signatures and stamps. The contents are amiable, clean, clear, comfortable, certain, generous, assured. fk
