Red House, Bexleyheath
Oxford, Webb studied at Aynhoin Northamptonshireand was then articled to firms of builder-architects in Wolverhamptonand Reading, Berkshire. He then moved to London where he eventually became a junior assistant for G. E. Street. While there he met William Morrisin 1856 and then started his own practice in 1858.
He is particularly noted as the designer of Red House at
Bexleyheath, south-east Londonin 1859 for William Morris, and — towards the end of his career — the house Standen(near East Grinsteadin West Sussex). These were among several works in his favoured niche: country houses.
Edward Burne-Jones, and Dante Gabriel Rossettiwere three of his fellow partners in the interior decorating and furnishing business, Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co., later to become Morris & Co.
Webb and Morris formed an important part of the
Arts and Crafts movement, and founded the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildingsin 1877. Webb also joined Morris's revolutionary Socialist League, becoming its treasurer. George Howardof Naworth Castlenear Brampton in Cumbriawas an able artist and friend of the Pre-Raphaelites, and a keen patron of Philip Webb. Webb had built two houses for his Naworth Castle Estate: Four Gables and Green Lane House, as well as his London house at 1, Palace Green. Much financial help was offered towards building a new church in Brampton by Charles Howard MP on condition that he chose the architect.
Webb's plan for St Martin's Church is quite unlike most other Victorian Churches, with the body of the church being almost square. It is the only church designed by Webb, and contains an exquisite set of stained glass windows designed by Burne-Jones, and executed in the William Morris studio.
In 1901 Philip Webb retired to the country and ceased practising. He continued to be an influence on the "school of rational builders" surrounding
William Lethaby, and Ernest Gimsonand his community of architect-craftsmen based at Sapperton in Gloucestershire.
