Gluckman Smith is delighted to have obtained Planning consent from Cotswold District Council for the creation of contemporary rural workspace near Cirencester. The scheme involves the conversion of an historic stone mill into 6,000 sqft of contemporary office and estate facilities. A landscaping scheme around the mill accompanies the proposal.
With their experience of designing contemporary rural workspace and working with historic buildings in the Local Planning Authority, Gluckman Smith were approached to find a solution for this large redundant farm building. Consent was obtained via delegated powers following a constructive enquiry for pre-application advice.
A design was developed to reflect the character of the estate in which it is situated. Working within the constraints of the existing stone walls, a layout has been achieved which will provide a modern and flexible space which can accommodate future change. A light industrial feel of the internal spaces is created, with exposed masonry walls, a heated concrete floor and expressed timber structure in the roof.
We have been working on a model proposal for outbuildings for a project in a Cotswold Estate
10th October – Autumn Lecture at The Garden Museum
A Twenty-First Century Country House Revival
Rupert Golby, Thomas Smith (Architect, Glukman Smith) and guest will be discussing their collaboration at Nevill Holt, Leicestershire
The gardens at Nevill Holt in Leicestershire have a long and varied history, appearing on the Estate Map of 1661. For much of the twentieth century, the heritage of the Hall and grounds lay dormant with the site’s use as a boys’ preparatory school. Since 2005 garden designer Rupert Golby has undertaken gradual transformation of the gardens, with the Hall restored to its historic use as a family home.
Nevill Holt is now host to a flourishing and critically acclaimed opera festival. During the summer months, opera goers enjoy an immersive experience in the gardens, interspersed with contemporary works of sculpture and architecture. With Tom Smith of Gluckman Smith Architects and a second guest, Rupert will guide us through this transformative tale.
