Architects Henry Victor Ashley and F.Winton Newman designed Freemasons' Hall and construction took place between 1927 and 1933.
The current Grade II art deco building is the third masonic hall on this two-and-a-quarter acre site in the heart of London. It cost over £1 million to build, the money having been raised by Freemasons to honour the 3225 Freemasons who died in WWI.
Chisel & Mouse have created a beautiful architectural sculpture of the Freemasons' Hall main entrance.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frame and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
Address: Freemasons' Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5AZ, England.

The Pantheon's dome is an incredible feet of engineering and remains the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome.

Rome grew from pastoral settlements on the south side of the Tiber where it forms a Z-shaped curve that contains an island where the river can be forded. Because of the river and the ford, Rome was at a crossroads of traffic following the river valley and of traders traveling north and south on the west side of the peninsula. The population grew to an estimated 310,000 people by the 3rd century BC. Rome gained dominance over the Mediterranean and the Roman Empire was established under Octavian in 27 BC. The city of Rome now surpassed a population of one million. After the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, Rome entered a long period of decline. During the medieval period, with the associated lack of construction activity, assured the survival of very significant ancient Roman material remains in the centre of the city. Rome was once the world's main epicentre of classical architecture, developing new forms such as the arch, the dome and the vault. Later the city became one of the main centres of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Rome's cityscape is also widely Neoclassical and Fascist in style.
This 3d map of Rome, at a scale of 1:5000, is centred on the area just east of the Z-shaped curve in the Tiber. It is a single resin tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in an oak frame. Completed with metal etched blue water. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

Buckingham Palace, in London, is the official residence of the British monarch. On many occasions it has been a focal point for the British people at times of national rejoicing and crisis. The original Buckingham House forms the core of today's palace and was built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705. It passed into Royal ownership in the 18th century and became the official residence of the British monarch in 1837.
Buckingham Palace has undergone major structural changes with the East Front being added in the early 19th century. Our architectural sculpture is of the central portion of the East Front and contains the balcony from which the Royal Family acknowledges the crowds on momentous occasions and annually after Trooping the Colour.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of Brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique.
Lescaze approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident.
Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.
