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.
We are delighted to announce the lauch of Gluckman Smith’s door knob collarboration with Joseph Giles.

Gluckman Smith’s Westbourne Park Road project has renewed panache after a change to the property’s interior design.
Website update pending.
Gluckman Smith was honored to trundle down to Somerset to present ‘The Garden Room’ to Hauser & Wirth.
Rhys, Charlotte and Timothy presented ideas for The Shed Project of previous post that would sit adjacent to the existing Maltings building. A ‘garden island’ would be created whereby flower beds would wrap around the structure; honoring the existing footprint.
See Project for more details.
