The fine detailing of the Regency wing as well as the tough oak and elm detailing of the older parts of the building provided a perfect inspiration and springing point for the new interventions, which are bold and decorative, respectful of their hosts without fearing to be strikingly contemporary in their appearance. The execution of the minimalist detailing required close attention by all involved in the design team, refinement and realisation of the many bespoke interventions, some perfectly created-  newly as if always present, others in striking contrast to this. The contractor’s highly skilled joinery shop allowed this vision to be made into reality.
