Project type: New Build
Contract period: 63 weeks
The construction of a new build music room in Ecclesiastical design, which sits seamlessly alongside an existing country house and accessed by a link corridor.
Every detail was carefully considered – from the handmade bricks, to the bespoke stone carvings and huge bronze casement windows that flood the area with light. An exposed oak frame acts as the skeleton for the building and there is an arts and crafts influence throughout the building, with intricate carvings to be found on French polished oak panels. The building includes a small kitchen and facilities, enabling the building to host functions and performances, if required.
The highly bespoke nature of this project meant that we worked closely with both the client and individual “artisans” in successfully cost-managing the scheme.
The project was undertaken over a period of 18 months, completing in December 2016, both within programme and in accordance with the initial contract sum.
