Easton Neston Estate, Northamptonshire

Easton Neston is one of the finest country houses in England, designed by architect Nicholas Hawksmoor with an adjacent wing by Wren. Unsympathetic additions and a fire in 2002 meant there was much for the new owners and their architects to address.

The historic setting clarified and repairs completed, attention turned to the sensitive incorporation of modern facilities to meet the needs of the Client’s domestic and business requirements (which required the incorporation of his fashion studios and workshops).

This has clearly been a labour of love for the past seven years, to return a wonderful piece of architecture to its former glory. The project has not only demanded a deep understanding of traditional craft, but also the ability to reconcile the demands of conservation with those of contemporary life.
