Basic Biographical Details

Name: Gordon & Flockhart
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1878
Ended: 1878
Bio Notes: During his year of study in 1878-79 in London and Paris William Flockhart entered a design in the Brompton Oratory competition in association with the unidentified Gordon as 'Gordon & Flockhart'. Gordon may have been George William Hamilton Gordon, born 1854, an assistant in the office of Alfred Waterhouse, who was the assessor and placed their design in the final four, describing it as 'the work of a Master... The interior seems to me to be very nearly perfect'. In the event the final choice lay with the Fathers who chose Herbert Gribble who had made designs for them in 1874-76.

After his year of study Flockhart entered the office of William Wallace at 27a Old Bond Street, London, first as an assistant and then in partnership as Wallace & Flockhart, his earliest commission being the addition of a tower and spire to Newhaven Free Church where Sir William Flockhart was a member of the congregation.
