Department of Architecture

Architecture minister John Penrose has listed four post-war houses in Cambridge that were designed by architects from this department

The four houses, all listed at grade II, are 39 New Road, Barton, designed by Barry Gasson and John Meunier in 1965; 214 Chesterton Road, Cambridge, designed by Marcial Echenique in 1971; and 72 and 74 Water Lane, Histon, designed by David Thurlow in 1972.

These listings provide a lasting testament to the quality and longevity of Cambridge alumni. As Tony Calladine, English Heritage’s designation team leader for the east of England,  says "the university connection has ensured that Cambridge has the best group of architect-designed modern houses outside London, and these are among the finest surviving examples, joining works already listed by Sir Colin St John Wilson and John Meunier.”
