Description
Red House

Home of William Morris, artist, craftsman and philosopher

Commissioned by William Morris in 1859 and designed by Philip Webb, Red House is of enormous international significance in the history of domestic architecture and garden design. The building is constructed of warm red brick, under a steep red-tiled roof, with an emphasis on natural materials and a strong Gothic influence. The garden was designed to 'clothe' the house with a series of subdivided areas which still clearly exist. Inside, the house retains many of the original features and fixed items of furniture designed by Morris and Webb, as well as wall paintings and stained glass by Burne-Jones. Originally surrounded by orchards and countryside, Red House and its garden now provide an oasis in a suburban environment
