Arisaig House by Philip Webb in Scotland

First country house by Arts & Crafts architect Philip Webb, his only one in Scotland: his references to the English parsonage style are adapted to the Scottish Highlands, using local granite rubble with dark whinstone dressings. The house was requisitioned by the military during World War II, with training for high-profile Czech agents.

Geffrye Museum Building, Shoreditch, London

Founded by Sir Robert Geffrye, the museum is a former site of almshouses built to house the financially insecure elderly from 1714. It was converted to a museum of furniture and industry by London Country Council in 1914. Since 1930, displays of domestic life have been exhibited here to depict period rooms from the 1600s, to the present day.
