Discreet architectural surgery allowed Tyntesfield to be captured at its final inhabited hour. Essential new services, systems and a lift have been cleverly integrated into the Grade I listed fabric, allowing it to work as a twenty-first century tourist attraction.
Architectural ingenuity throughout the conservation process was needed to meet the need for continuous public access, whilst accommodating the roosting patterns of colonies of bats. This is a hugely impressive conservation project in terms of both quality and execution.
