Top: the mosaic bath at Voewood was created using buttons and tiles.
Voewood, the Arts & Crafts style home, located in Norfolk, was built between 1903 and 1905 by the architect E. S. Prior. Voewood is a Scandanavian word meaning “Home Place.” The house was built by local craftsmen using materials quarried from the land itself.
Nikolaus Pevsner, a British scholar of art and architecture describes Voewood:
“Far and away the most interesting building in Holt…seen by few and can only be seen if one looks for it…a most violently idiosyncratic house…the inventions sometimes remind one almost of Gaudi.”
The Voewood Festival is August 27th - 29th, 2011: the Literacy Garden Party of the Year.
