Hakewill, Henry (1771–1830). English architect. He designed two distinguished Greek Revival buildings: Coed Coch, Denbighshire, Wales (1804), a country-house with a diagonally placed portico (demolished) and stair; and St Peter's Church, Eaton Square, London (1824–7—rebuilt after a fire in 1987). He had a large and flourishing practice, mostly concerned with country-houses, and he published an account of the Roman villa at Northleigh, Oxon. (1823). His brother, James (1778–1843), is known primarily for his many architectural and topographical publications, including a work on the abattoirs of Paris (1828) and Views…in the Regent's Park, laid out from the Designs of Decimus Burton (1831), although he designed buildings, all architecturally competent.
