BARNET TQ2588 TEMPLE FORTUNE HILL 31-0/26/10227 (North side) Hampstead Garden Suburb Nos.5-11 (Odd)


Artisans' cottages. 1908-9. Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin. Painted pebbledash with plinth of red brick in Flemish bond and brick to round-arched entrance to twit ten passage in centre. Roofs of tile. Tile kneelers to facing gables. Treated as gable-facing, double-ended house with five-window ranged to centre and one-window range to either end. Two storeys. Entrances to end units on returns under porches; centre units under porches braced by metal. Variation in number of casement lights introduces a syncopated rhythm into what is otherwise a strictly symmetrical composition. Axial ridge stack to centre party wall, and square axial stacks to rear slope of roof, on axis of cross wing returns; square stack to front of each cross wing. Casement windows of original design. Forms a pair with Nos. 6-12 even (q.v.), where the double-ended house type is repeated with slight variations in detail and arrangement. Nos. 1-35 (odd) and 2-36 (even) Temple Fortune Hill form an important part of the original artisans' quarter as planned by Unwin. As with Asmuns Hill, the emphasis is on the production of a coherent streetscape composed of distinct types.
