Renovation and extension to the Grade II listed Bourne Hill House to accommodate the offices of Wiltshire Council

The three storey addition is aligned with the historical building and set apart by narrow glazed section. The extension has 2600m2 of flexible, open plan offices with views of the surrounding gardens.

Externally, it is given presence and scale by a full-height colonnade set in front of glazed elevations.The design incorporates an integral low-energy strategy in order to achieve an 'excellent' BREEAM rating.

Bourne Hill House has been fully restored. It had been subjected to a series of detrimental external additions and these accretions have been swept away, reinforcing the architectural integrity of the house.
