Vorkosigan House sketches

Lois McMaster Bujold Fan Art


The Vorkosigan family has a grand house in the capital Vorbarr Sultana. This building is called Vorkosigan House, and it is frequently mentioned in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan novels.

I have made these sketches of how Vorkosigan House might look, based on hints in the novels.

Notice: The books do not give any clear description of the shape of Vorkosigan House, so it could be H-shaped, U-shaped, L-shaped, or perhaps T-shaped or some other shape.

New: Comments about the porte-cochere added.

Some comments about the sketches:


cross-section Extra: A cross-section through the front part of the H-shaped house.

Some things to note about the cross-section:

  • The garage in the sub-basement, and the ramp down to the garage.
  • Perhaps the Butterbug Lab is to the left of the wine cellar.
  • The main foyer on the ground floor (level 1) has double roof height.
  • The corridors on level 2 have one open side with railing towards the foyer.

Vor crests Back to the Vor Arms or Logos page.
Barrayar maps I have tried to be a Fan Mapmaker and made a (very) provisional Map of Barrayar
Vorkosigan ComConsole All Bujold fans have surely waited for the Vorkosigan ComConsole, reskinned versions of Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Suite, Netscape, or MS Internet Explorer with a "Vorkosigan" look.
