not an easy book
The ingenious double axis hotel in Paris, even in its originally more open setting, accommodated outside spaces differently at the front and back. With similar justification, Hawksrnoor's Easton Neston yields a tense disunity between front and side. The discontinuous elevation on the intimate garden side away from the long axis, accommodates varieties of spaces and levels inside and necessities of scale outside.
The side elevation of the Strozzi Palace anticipates its hidden position on a side alley.
