William and Mary architecture dates from 1690s-1715. They themselves commission many buildings such as Hampton Court, Kensington Palace, and Greenwich Hospital.
The style has dutch Gables, shaped with ogee parapets crowned with semi-circular or triangular pediments.

A Dutch gable is a gable with sides have a shape made up of one or more curves and has a pediment at the top. An ogee parapet is one that (going from low to high) is a concave arc flowing into a convex arc, with vertical ends.
