Working on an existing building and estate to meet the present needs without compromising the future THE OLD RECTORY
The Old Rectory

The site is located in West Knoyle, Wiltshire, and the while the property is not a listed building we were required to approach the project with the same consideration to the existing architectural detailing to preserve the heritage. We used our experience as listed building architects to prepare the designs, schedules and architectural details such the stone and joinery items.

The Work
  • Renovation and extensions creating a 650msq property
The Old Rectory

The project consisted of extensive renovation of the property including several extensions, a bay window and an orangery. As the property had previously been extended and altered several times the approach was to bring some cohesion to various elements. The overriding aim was to integrate the extensions with the character of the property through extensive consideration of the scale, architectural detailing and materials. The scheme sought to create the new accommodation to benefit from the southern views over the fabulous grounds while improving the internal flow of the spaces built to a very high standard.

The Drawing Room detailing was influenced by internal Georgian features such as the plaster dentil cornice with decorative urn and drop frieze, decorative fireplace mantle and parquet flooring.

The Chicksgrove stone new entrance porch with the label and gothic arch shaped recessed panels create a sense of scale and a reflection of the properties architectural status.

With our experience and knowledge of working with renovating old existing properties we able to evaluate any heritage architectural assets, fabric of the building and the internal spaces to enable the alterations and extensions to improve the properties aspects. Our attention to detail is proven with many successful projects, this is just one to illustrate our attention to architectural stone details and internal features.
