  • 1 Queen Anne Revival

    Queen Anne Revival style is one of the most eclectic of the 19th-century styles, as well as the most varied, colourful and light-hearted. It takes its name from Queen Anne of England (who reigned from 1702-14), and blends a number of motifs, including medieval (e.g., Tudor windows and corner towers) and classical (e.g., columns and pilasters, pediments, sash windows, Palladian windows and stringcourses). Queen Anne Revival buildings emphasize balanced composition rather than symmetrical composition, and are often asymmetrical in massing, with irregular rooflines. They incorporate a wide variety of materials, including brick, terra cotta, wood clapboard and wood shingle. In Ontario, the Queen Anne Revival style was most commonly used for residential architecture, but its influence can be seen in religious architecture of that era, appearing as a “hybrid” with other styles.
