NRAP are delighted to announce that our proposals for the refurbishment of the Goods Shed and interventions within the landscape of the Scheduled Ancient Monument at Clare Castle have recently received approval.
Work to the medieval Hall at Corpus Christi is underway. The ductwork has been striped out to reveal the form of the roof.
Another successful “open house” party coinciding with Mill Road Winter Fair attracted a good crowd who shared in the jazz, pizza, beer and wine.
We have just returned from four days in Villa Saraceno, a Palladian villa in Italy. Although a change is as good as a rest, I fear we might have got a little too used to the generous proportions of our surroundings.
Work on refurbishing and extending Storey’s Way came to an end recently. Thanks go to Adams and Newman contractors for their excellent work.
The scheme provides a series of linked spaces that step down to follow the slope of the site, to provide a new dining room and living room within a light and airy interior of varying height and dimension. The back wall of the existing house, against which a new staircase rises, plays an important part in the overall composition. Exposed timber beams and rafters support a mono-pitch roof that refers back to the timber-framed medieval hall and a continuous glazed roof at the junction with the house brings natural light to the back of the space to ensure decent lighting levels in the original rooms.”
