Acclaimed Hamden landmark Torpedo House is proud to introduce an entirely new category of Important Architecture. Fairy Tale Architecture. We look at it as the marriage of Walk Disney and Alice Washburn, the architecture of Torpedo House itself. Free from allegiance to any existing architectural style or school, Washburn was able to draw from them all, and create her own signature style, one in which whimsy, fancy and childlike delight are the driving principles, where Garrison meets Medieval meets Colonial, on equal footing. In the next several weeks, we will be sharing more examples of this exciting historical (and historic) development

So we watched a documentary on Netflix that claimed that Wallis actually said that to Edward. Who knew she was funny? Nazi, yes. Funny, no. This lovely portrait of the two royal Nazi sympathizers is part of the Tertium Quid collection and is available for purchase as of this very moment, right on our new website Torpedo House, which you should go see even if you don’t like the Royals or the Nazis or silver teapots. It’s all about expanding your worldview. Incidentally, Edward was quite the moron, it turns out, and Wallis was awful in too many ways to count. Click on her round smug little face for transport to Torpedo.House. You’ll land in Tertium Quid. Scroll down.

It’s the only red house gallery in the world. Okay, in the United States. Oh my god, all right, in Connecticut. Anyway, it’s private and by appointment and filled with wonder and dustfree and no, you can’t bring your dog, and yes, you can buy things. In fact, that’s the point. If you go to the website now, you can see the sort of things you can buy, and the amazing thing is you don’t even have to come all the way to TORPEDO HOUSE to make a purchase. You can do it from your sofa. Not online, though. You can communicate with us through the website and we will do it all the old-fashioned way. By email. Or the prehistoric way. Telephone. Anyway, you know what they say about torpedos.
