DescriptionDatable to c.1908 when Lutyens again visited the Mallets at Varengeville, rather than to his first visits in 1897-1900. The style of the drawing is also closer to that of his Castle Drogo sketches. It is unlikely that the scheme was even executed.
Plans, elevations and perspectives are held at RIBA, showing a building comprising a square central hall, with corridors radiating off this to the main wings of the hotel which are arranged in the shape of a diamond pattern about the central hall. (Amery et al, 1981, Cat no.476)
