Tulip Staircase, Queen's House, Greenwich
The Queen's House, Greenwich, is a former royal residence built between 1616–1619 in Greenwich, then a few miles downriver from London, and now a district of the city. Its architect was Inigo Jones, for whom it was a crucial early commission, for Anne of Denmark, the queen of King James VI & I of Great Britain. The Queen's House is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain.
