Lutyens designed the house in the full Palladian style. He drew inspiration from Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren and his initial sketches differed little from the first completed model. He insisted that the house should be viewed from all sides and his first letters to Princess Marie Louise were concerned with the mechanism for lifting the outer shell of the house above the rooms to ensure this.
