dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Doddington Court, met sy treffende steenwerkstruktuur, is sowel boeiend as amusant vanweë 'n eienaardige samevoeging van allerlei argitektoniese aspekte. Die ontwerp eerbiedig die inwoners se privaatheid, terwyl bekwame vakmanskap en deurgaanse deeglikheid opvallend is. Uiteenlopende dekoratiewe details is met oorleg geïntegreer. Die geheel bekoor vanweë die unieke sintese van styl en die aanwesigheid van eg-menslike elemente in hierdie tegnologiese eeu. en_US
dc.description.abstract • Summary: Doddington Court, with its striking brickwork structure, is both fascinating and amusing in the way it merges various architectural aspects. While the design respects the privacy of the inhabitants one cannot help noticing the skilled craftsmanship and solid durability throughout. Details in the decoration differ in character but are integrated with fine judgement. The building as a whole is charming: elements of style are fused into a unique synthesis and traces of the human touch are refreshing in a technological era.
