High & Over Amersham Original Painting
High & Over Amersham, Buckinghamshire
This Grade II* modernist building 1929 - 1931 designed by Amayas D Connell for the Professor of Classical Archaeology at London University and head of classical sculpture at the British Museum, who was an adviser in ancient sculpture to Getty. It is Y-shaped, designed to catch the sun and views across the Misbourne valley, . It was known locally as the “aeroplane house”, either because of the propellor Y shape or because the two canopies looked like a bi-plane. High and Over was the first Modernist 'International Style’ country house. Connell and Ashmole had met at the British School in Rome.
