ALDWINCKLE, Herbert John

Born: ?
Died: 1937 09 12


A pioneer Johannesburg architect, his name is found spelt variously as Aldwinckle, Aldwincle, Aldwynckle and Aldwinkle. In the Institute of South African Architects' membership list (1927) his name is found spelt Aldwinckle. Aldwinckle was probably trained overseas. It is not certain at what date he came to South Africa but he was in the country by 1903 when he was placed sixth in the competition for Durban Town Hall. By 1905 he was practising in Johannesburg where he designed several houses and commercial buildings, the best-known of his house designs being North Lodge (1905-6) in Free Renaissance style.
