RIBA137313
Vanbrugh, Sir John (1664-1726)
NOTES: The Temple of the Four Winds lies at the eastern end of Temple Terrace, commanding stunning views across the hills. It was designed by Vanbrugh but remained unfinished at the time of his death in 1726; the interiors were finally decorated in 1738 by the stuccoist Francesco Vassalli. The temple was originally used as a place for refreshment and reading, beneath it is a cellar where servants prepared the food they served to the family above.
