The Queen's House, Greenwich, was designed and begun in 1616- 1617 by architect Inigo Jones for Anne of Denmark (the queen of King James I of England) and completed, also by Jones, about 1635 for Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I. The House is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been put up in Britain. However, although its style is generally called Palladian, its most specific precedent is not by Palladio but rather Giuliano da Sangallo's Villa Medici at Poggio a Caiano. Some earlier British buildings such as Longleat had made borrowings from the classical style but these were restricted to small details and were not applied in a systematic way. Nor was the form of these buildings informed by an understanding of classical precedents. The Queen's House would have appeared revolutionary to British eyes in its day. ...more on Wikipedia about "Queen's House"
