Bunney, Michael Frank Wharlton (1875–1926). English architect. He became an assistant to Horace Field before setting up his own practice in 1902, and from 1905 was in partnership with Clifford Copeman Makins (1876–1963). Bunney is remembered for his modest houses, especially those he designed for Hampstead Garden Suburb (1907–14). All were modelled on C17 vernacular houses of Herts. Bunney and Field collaborated on English Domestic Architecture of the XVIIth and XVIIIth Centuries (1905 and 1928), an invaluable compendium of undervalued buildings.
