Architectural Styles: Tudor Revival

By Gretchen Sawatzki

Tudor Revival is a modern interpretation of medieval period architecture popular from 1910 - 1930. Like most architectural styles in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Tudor Revival style borrows elements from the Gothic and Renaissance style buildings of the 16th and 17th centuries.

The Tudor Revival style was the preferred architectural style of the wealthy and is easily identifiable by its distinct features.

Architectural Features:

- Asymmetrical design and steep gabled rooflines
- Brick or stone exterior cladding
- Half-timbering and stucco
- Gothic arches
- Plank doors
- Leaded and stained glass windows
- Massive brick chimney(s)
