Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses
Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses
Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, New York, New York City, United States The Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses are a cluster of 27 dwellings located at 220-234 Willoughby Avenue, 171-185 Steuben Street, and 172-186 Emerson Place. Built in 1907, they were designed in a Colonial Revival style by architect Hobart A. Walker. The houses, situated at the northeast corner of the Pratt Institute campus,, were commissioned by the institute to meet its expanding needs. Pratt Institute was founded by Charles Pratt for the training of artisans, foremen, designers, draftsmen, and other technicians. The school was an outgrowth of Pratt's interest in manual training and his belief that the best way to help others was to teach them how to help themselves. The type of technical training established at Pratt was unprecedented in the United States at that time. Charles Pratt (1830-1891) was born in Watertown, Massachusetts. In 1851 he moved to New York City and worked for the firm of Schenck & Downing, dealers in paints and oils. He joined the firm of Reynolds, Devoe & Pratt, which manufactured and sold pdint and related products in 1854. In 1867, Pratt established the firm of Charles Pratt & Co. with the intention of marketing a less flamable kerosene for lighting, one that would have a flashpoint of more than 100 degrees F. "Pratt's Astral Oil" gained a worldwide reputation, and the firm began to manufacture tools, cans, petroleum barrels, and similar products. The Pratt Manufacturing Co. was founded to produce sulphuric acids and other chemicals used in petroleum refining. Pratt's business interests were acquired by John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil in 1874. At that time Pratt's refineries had a capacity of 1500 barrels of oil a day and were regarded as the most sucessful in the country. Pratt remained with the company and quickly became a major force at Standard Oil. Pratt, whose philanthropic interests were wide ranging, not only founded the Pratt Institute and its Free Library but also endowed the Adelphi Academy in Brooklyn, Amherst College, and the University of Rochester* He built the Astral Apartments, a model tenement development in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, near his oil refineries, and gave $100,000 towards the construction of Clinton Hill's Emmanuel Baptist Church, a designated New York City Landmark. Pratt had moved into the Clinton Hill area in the 1870s, building his large mansion at 252 Clinton Avenue in 1875. He also bestowed houses in the neighborhood as wedding presents for his sons, and all were built on Clinton Avenue after Charles Pratt's death in 1891. Pratt Institute opened on October 17, 1887, with a drawing class of twelve students. From these modest beginnings, the school rapidly expanded its departments, facilities and student body. Consequently, it was logical that the school should wish to provide residential accommodations for its staff on a site convenient to the campus, on land which Pratt Institute had purchased some fifteen years earlier. The commission for the houses was given to Hobart A. Walker. Walker, a specialist in residential design, began his architectural practice in 1895. Other known commissions are the late Romanesque Revival carriage house (1903) for J. Henry Alexandre at 173 East 73rd Street, Manhattan; the Colonial Revival Ralph H. Wilson residence (1907) at 162 Argyle Road in the Prospect Park South Historic District in Brooklyn; and the neo-Jacobean William H. Burger residence (1.902) at 443 Clinton Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District in Brooklyn. Walker's choice of a Colonial Revival style for the Pratt rowhouses is both characteristic of his work and reflects the popular taste in residential architecture of the period. While more commonly used in freestanding houses, here the style is used to successful effect in a rowhouse design. The 27 rowhouses are clustered in three groups with the fronts of the houses facing the streets and the rears facing a center garden divided by two alleyways, Each house has a small front yard enclosed by an iron fence. Each row of two-and-one-half-story red brick houses has two alternating house types, one with a peaked stuccoed gable, the other with a stepped gable. Paired stoops lined by railings lead to entrances with paneled double doors. Above the doors are windows with diamond-paned sash set below dentil courses and stone lintels. Adjacent to each entrance is a two story, three-sided window bay. Square panels are placed below the windows. The sash at the second floor level are diamond paned, and the bay is surmounted by a dentil course and molding. The use of such sash and window bays is characteristic of the Colonial Revival style. At the attic story the gables are set in front of sloping roofs. . The stuccoed, peaked gables have paired windows outlined by wood framing. The stepped gables have paired windows set below common arched tympana with foliate panels. Such stepped gables are based on Dutch Colonial

This is the amazingly stunning scene my wife and I arrived to see as we peered out the back of our Tassie accommodation. We just arrived today after a relaxing cruise on the Spirit of Tasmania and a beautiful drive from Devenport to Hobart via some beautiful little towns. I would love to keep updating my stream as the trip progresses, although the internet access is quite limited so that may be a little difficult. Either way I'll be sure to share this stunning scenery with you all when I get back home...which is still ages away thankfully :o)
