Contemporary house within a castle ruin in rural Warwickshire
The new accommodation centres on the original Norman castle, but also takes in the space between it and the perimeter wall, which is also the retaining wall of the moat.
An armature of new masonry work has been threaded throughout the main sections of the ruin, with the double job of both stabilising and protecting the early stonework and of providing a rigid frame to which the new living accommodation, of timber, could be attached.
Four bedrooms and three bathrooms have been created at ground level, while the upper floor of the keep has been turned into a spacious living-dining-kitchen room with a large south-west window opening on a view of the village and the church.
