Lululaund was the Romanesque revival style house and studio of German-born British artist Hubert von Herkomer, in Melbourne Road, Bushey, Hertfordshire. It was designed in c.1886 and inhabited in 1894. It was demolished in 1939. The exterior design was developed from a sketch by the American architect Henry Hobson Richardson and was the only example of his work in Europe. It was an influence on the work of English architect Charles Harrison Townsend.
