  • 1 Tudor Revival

    The Tudor Revival architecture of the 20th century (also called Mock Tudor or Tudorbethan) draws on British domestic architecture of the mid- to late 19th century, which was based on a revival of aspects of Tudor architecture (1485-1547). Tudor Revival focuses on the simple, rustic and the less impressive aspects of Tudor architecture, imitating medieval cottages or country homes. The style features steeply pitched roofs, superficial forms of half-timbering (timbers applied to a stuccoed wall) especially common in the gables, herringbone brickwork, Tudor arches, tall mullioned windows, high chimneys and floors that are jettied above porches. Tudor Revival is most commonly used in residential architecture and, as a result, very few churches of this style exist in Ontario.
