FUTURE PLANS

FUTURE PLANS

The future of Cuerden Hall is as a private, family home: its original purpose. This produces the least impact on the fabric, the smallest number of occupants, the fewest changes and the essential undoing of inappropriate alterations done in the past.

Subdivided rooms will be opened up, servants areas restored, cellars freed from damp, stonework repaired, vegetation removed, timbers restored, roofs repaired, new uses found for redundant buildings, ancient woodland carefully maintained and the gardens enhanced. 


The details of these works will be provided on this website as the research and design work progresses.

OUR VISION

DESIGN AND ACCESS STATEMENT

The objective of this Design & Access Statement is to describe the iterative design process undertaken between Client, Place and Architect. This process has facilitated much thought about the nature of 21st century country living, the aspirations for the use of space and the relationship between activities. The process has enabled a deeper more critical understanding of Cuerden Hall and the opportunities it presents as an exceptional and unique traditional home. The methodology has been to review all existing material, understand the building and site, understand the historical development and significance of its various parts, and to devise a creative response that brought both together and then continue the iterative process of design development to refine the concept to a viable proposal.
