7/17 The Node Court
Model dairy, now offices. 1928 bv Maurice Chesterton for the
American businessman Carl Holmes. The design has its roots in
the Picturesque revival and was probably inspired by Marie
Antoinette's dairy in 'Le Hameau', Versailles. Circular rendered
brick building mainly of 1 storey and attic arranged around a
courtyard and covered with a continuous roof of thatch. Plastic
casement windows, formerly metal frame. N entrance has broad 2-
storey arch set in a wide gable. Offset 1-storey wings each
side. On opposite side of courtyard is a 2-storey cottage with
timber frame balcony. Large 3-storey tower to the SE with
eyebrow. dormers in circular pyramid roof. The circular courtyard
acted as turning space for milk lorries. To the SE is a covered
way, formerly also thatched, which was equipped with a mechanical
bucket conveyor system and leads to the dungery, a low
rectangular thatched, hipped-roof structure. The Node set
standards for hygiene and efficient dairy farming in England. It
resembles contemporary expressionist buildings in Holland.
