Stevenson, John James

Stevenson, John James (1831–1908). Scots architect. He worked in the offices of Bryce and ‘Great’ Scott, and was later (1860–9) a partner of Campbell Douglas (1828–1910), and (1871–6) E. R. Robson. He settled in London in 1869 where he worked with Robson on several schools for the London School Board. His Red House, 140 Bayswater Road, London (1871—demol-ished), was one of the earliest examples of the Queen Anne style, and was a catalyst in the move away from stucco to brick for London houses. Among other works were houses at 42–8, Pont Street, Knightsbridge (1876–8), Lowther Gardens, South Kensington (1878), 14 Melbury Road (1876–8—demolished), all in London, and Ken Hill, Snettisham, Norfolk (1879–80). He also designed the first ‘Queen Anne’ houses in Oxford at 27 and 29 Banbury Road, a fine pair of 1880–1 featuring red brick, richer red-brick dressings, balconies, and white-painted window-frames. He wrote House Architecture (begun 1869–70, and published 1880).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
