uniform giant colonnade between screening remaining floors; features adapted from
a Nash scheme for rebuilding Carlton House. 3 main storeys and attic storey.

canted bay-turrets, 2 of which flank the east fronts of the wings. Recessed
glazing bar sashes, segmental arched to ground floor of canted bay-turrets.
Segmental arcaded ground floor loggia-podium with balustraded parapet, above
which rises giant Corinthian colonnade carrying continuous entablature with

cornice and pediment over centrepiece but advanced as top floor of canted
bay-turrets surmounted by spike finialed pointed domes.
