Another Robert Adam Masterpiece
Robert Adam (1728-1792) was particularly known for his interiors based on classical decoration. Robert Adam was responsible for much Georgian development in London, including the layout of Portland Place, Apsley House, the remodel of Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath, Lansdowne House, and the facade of the Admiralty in Whitehall. He also designed a significant number of country seats throughout Britain including Syon House, Kedleston Hall, Harewood House, Osterley Park, Bowood, Croome Court and Newby Hall.
