"[Ernest Newton] considers that a house should form part of its surroundings and be affected by the natural characteristics of the neighbourhood in which it is placed. . . . To sum up, Mr. Newton impresses one as an artist of culture and widespread knowledge who, while having absorbed the true spirit of the old builders, a term which, as has been shown, he himself chooses to claim for himself, has yet deliberately cast aside the strict letter of their so-called styles, In this theory of negation he has perhaps not proceeded so far as Mr. C. F. Voysey for example, but nevertheless he has succeeded in retaining his own individuality." — The Studio
