Priory Road 15-17 Greyfriars

Residential

The appearance of this pair of villas is in sharp contrast to the nearby Grimwood properties, evidence of the firm's versatility and openness to new ideas. The flat roofed design was highly innovative for 1908 and had many advantages, not least the saving on expensive roof trusses and tiles. However, it never really caught on in domestic architecture, perhaps due to a combination of problems with water penetration and house buyers conservatism. The band of red brick along the parapet and the deep overhang of the eaves help to create the illusion of a roof.
