Victorian Architecture

The Victorian Architecture style refers to styles that emerged in the period between 1830 and 1910. It took inspiration from French, Italian, Tudor, Egyptian and even Gothic styles. The Architects were free to explore and experiment on these styles to such an extent that it gave rise to several other notable Architectural styles such as Gothic revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Stick style, Romanesque style and shingle style. The key elements in Victorian Architecture include:

•          Two to three stories

•          Towers.

•          Wood or stone exterior.

•          Vibrant colors. 

•          Complicated, asymmetrical shape.

•          Textured wall surfaces.
