Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Hampton Hall

Hampton Hall

The Tudor style adapts itself to an apartment building with some success. Old Pa Pitt can’t keep himself from wondering whether there are actually apartments up there under those peaked roofs with the dormers. Most of the Tudor atmosphere is in the detailing of the stone, but we have a few cartoonish suggestions of half-timbering just so nobody mistakes the style for anything else.

Addendum: According to the city architectural inventory (PDF), Hampton Hall was built in 1928.
