New café and repairs to grade II listed building. We have worked for some time with our client conserving this building in the heart of the park and bringing it back into public use, following years of post war neglect.
Parts of the house date back to the eighteenth century, including rooms designed by Sir John Soane. His characteristic detailing is occasionally visible and the new work was designed in a similar simple idiom.
Key in saving the building was threading a new large space within the victorian wing and we were able to achieve this while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the original spaces.
The building is now used as a cafe, restaurant and events venue.
We also added two new entrance pavilions containing visitor facilities and enhanced the setting of the entrance to the historic gardens of Pembroke Lodge.
Work is about to begin on the new Heritage Centre in the grounds of the Lodge.
