Overview

winged corridor villa


Quick Reference

[MC]

Style of Roman house in which a corridor or verandah runs along the front of the building giving access to rooms in the main range and linking to a pair of flanking wings, one at either end. Good examples have been excavated in Britain at Great Staughton, Huntingdonshire, and Folkstone, Kent. Additions to the basic plan sometimes mean that winged corridor villas achieve an H‐shaped plan, as at Hambleden, Buckinghamshire. Winged corridor villas are not confined to Britain, however, as they are also common in France, Belgium, and Germany.
