London is one of the world's oldest great cities. It grew from three centres: the Roman settlement in the 1st century on the northern banks of the Thames, now known as "the City"; Southwark on the southern banks; and Westminster upstream. London expanded rapidly. The Great Fire of 1666 led to the proposal of many radical rebuilding schemes but these came to little. Instead London was rebuilt piecemeal driven by capitalism and housing demands. London's population passed one million by 1800 and had reached 6.5 million a century later. Its structure is immensely complicated and there is little discernible form. Unsurprisingly it is not characterised by any particular architectural style with its buildings having been amassed over such a long period of time.

This 3d map of London, at a scale of 1:5000, is of "the City" - London's hub of trade, commerce, and banking. It is a single plaster tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in a perspex frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

HILL HOUSE (M)

7.5in high, 7.5in wide, 2in deep & 3lb approximately.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's most famous and beautiful domestic commission was Hill House. Set high on a hill in Helensburgh, this architecturally eclectic house overlooks the river Clyde. The building is unmistakable due to Mackintosh's completely asymmetrical design. Consisting of numerous different roof levels and shapes, with the exterior derived from the interior planning - the house is truly unique. It was built for the Scottish publisher Walter Blackie as his family residence. Mackintosh was responsible for almost all aspects of the house from the exterior to much of the furniture and internal fixtures and fittings. The house is now maintained by the National Trust for Scotland. The Landmark Trust keeps the top floor available for holiday lets, well worth a visit!

The Hoover Buildings have long been heralded as a monument to the art deco movement. The Hoover Buildings, designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners, are magnificent and a real advertisment for the Hoover company. The beautiful facades were a revolution in the 1930's and the use of colour was especially bold with the light green window frames making the buildings unmistakable.

Chisel & Mouse have produced an architectural sculpture of "Building No.7". It was the last to be constructed and operated as the staff canteen and recreation centre.

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 look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE

10in high, 7in wide, 2in deep & 4.5lb approximately.

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.
