A WINDOW ALCOVE IN THE MODEL ROOM
CLUB HOUSE OF THE NEW YORK YACHT CLUB
From the American Architect
DETAIL OF ONE OF THE MAIN WINDOWS
WARREN & WETMORE, ARCHITECTS The lofty model room, with its much criticized mantel, is partially lighted by three windows like the above. It does not contain a familiar moulding nor an archæological specimen of any
kind to take away from the salt-water originality of the design. Like the windows, it shows a grasp of thought and a grace of expression seldom equaled in America. It may be lacking in repose, and is German rather than American, but an expression of its purpose is always present.
WARREN & WETMORE, ARCHITECTS The same hand is evident in the designing of the inside as the outside ; in fact, the architects designed the furniture, hangings, and fixtures, and consequently there are but few buildings so consistently straightforward.
DETAIL SHOWING TERRACE OVER MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE NEW YORK YACHT CLUB WARREN & WETMORE, ARCHITECTS The mere fact that the room in which this mantel stands called forth the remark, "A pirate's dream," indicates how fully the designer understood his problem. The effect everywhere is spirited and nautical. There may be too much of Capt. Kidd's plunder on the mantel, yet it has many good qualities not clearly apparent in a photograph.
