|Building Notes||Both Charles H. Bebb and Carl F. Gould came into their partnership having already established themselves in their respective fields as individuals and members of highly successful design teams. Joining their complementary strengths, Bebb and Gould became associates in 1914 with the agreement that Bebb would act as engineer and partner in charge of management, contracts and specifications, and Gould as principal designer and planner. In the early decades of the 20th century, Bebb & Gould flourished, designing over two hundred projects, churches, civic buildings, homes, commercial structures and monuments. These designs took on a variety of architectural styles, depending on the wishes of the client, siting, and financial considerations. The Lakeside master plan follows other eastern prep schools in its arrangement of red brick buildings trimmed with white, and playing fields nearby. A refectory, a dormitory (More Hall), and a classroom building (Bliss Hall) were constructed first, with the gymnasium, headmaster's house and other housing to follow later. The central classroom building with its clock tower is remeniscent of the Federalist style of architecture popular at the turn of the 19th century in New England, developed from Georgian neoclassical tastes but differed in its use of plainer surfaces with attenuated detail. |
