Private House, Dorset

Major refurbishment of listed Grade 1 listed 15th-20th century manor house

This Grade I listed manor house in an extensive estate in Dorset required work to update the services and provide new routes of access to the Edwardian wing of the house. Working with structural engineers we devised subtle remodelling of the bank into which the house is built to provide a bridge access at second floor, improved kennel and storage facilities, and refurbished accommodation, together with improvements to weatherproofing and thermal performance whilst maintaining and conserving the historic elements of the house.
