Basic Biographical Details
|Name: ||Laurence Kirkpatrick Hall |
|Designation: ||Architect |
|Born: ||1875 |
|Died: ||1950 |
|Bio Notes: ||Laurence Kirkpatrick Hall was born in 1875 and articled to E M S Pilkington (not in the British Architectural Library/RIBA 'Directory of British Architects 1834-1914') for the years 1893-1895, completing his articles with William Douglas Caröe in 1895-96. He then returned to Pilkington, first as improver, and then from the following year as partner, remaining with him until 1900 when he commenced practice on his own account. At some point he travelled in France. |
Hall was admitted FRIBA on 2 March 1908, his proposers being Edmund Walter Wimperis of London, Caröe, and William Laidlaw Carruthers of Inverness.
Hall's middle name and third proposer indicate that he had Scottish connections, while his home address suggests that he was comfortably off. His one known Scottish work, Sandwood, Nairn, is in a very competent Scots 17th-century style, similar to that of Walter Ramsay Davidson. The interior has refined Arts and Crafts woodwork with some 18th-century details.
Hall died in 1950.
