Nash, John

John Nash (1752 – 1835)

John Nash, born 1752 in Lambeth, London, was an English architect responsible for much of the layout of Regency London.
Nash trained with architect Sir Robert Taylor. Later he focused on the design of country houses, in a successful partnership with landscape garden designer, Humphry Repton. Nash returned to work in London, in 1792.
Nash's work came to the attention of the Prince Regent (later King George IV) who, in 1811 commissioned him to develop an area later known as Marylebone Park. Nash was also employed by the Prince to develop his Ocean Pavilion Palace in Brighton, originally designed by Henry Holland. By the early 19th century Nash finished his work on the Ocean Pavilion, which was then transformed into the Royal Pavilion. The Royal Pavilion still exists in Brighton today. More commissions for Nash followed in London, including the remodelling of Buckingham House to create Buckingham Palace.
