Astley Castle RenovationEdit profile
Astley is a unified site of great complexity and resonance: moated castle, gateway and vestigial curtain walls, lake, church and the ghost of pleasure gardens all combine in a picturesque landscape of great power'. Following our competition winning entry for The Landmark Trust we received planning permission and heritage lottery funding for a contemporary house to be built into the medieval heart of the ruined castle, maintaining the ongoing, interpretative relationship between the historic construction, landscape and domestic inhabitation. Work commenced on site in autumn 2008.
