– Project in Progress –

This project to restore an important Queen Anne manor house encompasses the wide-ranging requirements and constraints of working with not only our client but also Historic England, English Heritage and other specialist conservation consultants.

The Brief

The commission is to refurbish: the kitchen, eight bedrooms, bathrooms, the wine cellar and basement areas, gym, art studio, stabling, gate house and outbuildings. The scope includes full decorative schemes, furniture layouts, lighting and electrical designs for the kitchen, bathrooms.

Design Principles

The clients’ extensive and important contemporary art collection is to be integrated into the interior to form a backdrop to the individual room schemes. The schemes combine natural, soft colours with comfortable, welcoming spaces.

The use of bespoke joinery throughout the scheme, and notably in the extensive wine cellar and basement areas, connects seamlessly to the essential character of the manor, enhancing and adding new lustre to this gem of family home.

The Wine Cellar
The wine cellar reaches across the whole house footprint, with arched basement cellars which will undergo full restoration, with temperature controlled bespoke detailed joinery throughout.  In the centre of this area will be a tasting space for open storage of wines for drinking now and a seating/bar area.
