Voysey Studio :: Shared Description

This is one of the first and best buildings designed by C F A Voysey in the Arts and Crafts movement. Designed in 1891 as a studio for W E F Britten, later Voysey lived in it. The front has two storey living accommodation. Behind the big chimney it continued as a large glass-roofed studio. It was given to the United Reformed Church, who gave it to the Hungarian Reformed Church when they were exiled from Hungary in 1948. The studio area is now the church. The glazed roof and Westmorland slate roof have been restored in 2005, the restoration architect being Tim Bruce-Dick who is also involved in fundraising for further restoration and modernisation.
In September 2010 it was open as part of London Open House.
