Quote from the blurb;
"... High Cross House, completed in 1932, was designed by Swiss American architect, William Lescaze, and built for William Curry, the first headmaster of the famous Dartington Hall School. Inspired by the De Stijl movement and Le Corbusier with Bauhaus furniture, the opportunity to visit this architectural masterpiece should not be missed."
As the National Trust officially opened this 'site' to the public this week, we thought we'd pop over and have a look - just 30 minutes up the road. Now unlike many trust properties it is small with no grounds to speak of but is of architectural interest. Actually the property inside had a barren feeling - very minimalist and to be very honest not worth the admission fee (as far as I'm concerned - so Trust members only) for what was on offer. It is a 'work in progress' and visitor are being asked for suggestions on how it should evolve over time - a bit of a blank canvas at present. There is talk of using certain rooms for art & exhibition space and there are two artists in residence at present, so it will be interesting to see how High Cross House developers in the coming years. As I was out-&-about with the Fish Eye lens, there are some pictures of the property in the Fish Eye Fun Gallery.
Born in 1956 (so getting on a bit now) I'm married and have two wonderful children we all live in Devon in the South West of England - on the Cornish border.
