Scheme name: Easton Neston

Practice: Ptolemy Dean Architects Ltd

Client: Max Studio UK

Photographer: Ptolemy Dean Architects Ltd

Easton Neston is one of the finest country houses in England, designed by Hawksmoor with an adjacent wing by Wren. Unsympathetic additions and a fire in 2002 meant that there was much for the new owners and their architects to address.

The historic setting clarified and repairs completed, attention turned to the sensitive incorporation of modern facilities. The project has not only demanded a deep understanding of traditional craft, but also the ability to reconcile the demands of conservation with those of contemporary life.
