A beautifully proportioned and elegant gesellschaftsräumen (social room) designed by Edgar Wood in 1906. The cream and white decor is underpinned by complementary blue and brown of the floors. The round doorways are echoed in the ceiling, lighting and furniture.
Edgar Wood's design for a Study Hall is open, sunny and inviting. The lower walls are covered with exotic marbles while above are colourful patterns. The feel is almost Mediterranean.
This is a design for a country church in North Lancashire. Edgar Wood uses the beams and crucks found in old barns to give a real country flavour to the interior. The drawing is great fun and it's a shame it was never built.
This is the inside of Long Street Methodist Church as it was in 1907. It is now part of the Edgar Wood Centre in Middleton, Manchester, England. The stonework is a pinkish colour, the brickwork is a close match, the roof is brown while the bench in the foreground was stained sage green, an attractive colour contrast. Edgar Wood pioneered a style of church design which was both traditional and modern at the same time.
