Design: William Holgate Architects

Northorpe Hall – Project Information

Project Description

The NHS funded renovation of a large Listed barn and provision of a new catering block to improve facilities for Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust. The former internal divisions have been stripped out, creating a light and colourful space. The new layout allows lectures and seminars with buffet provision for larger groups and a space in the roof for more informal children’s meetings.

Cost: £500 000 (£1 500 per square metre)
Client: Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust, Mirfield, West Yorkshire

An independent charity which provides a wide range of services for young people and their families. The Trust provides Counselling and Mentoring services and runs the Young Carers Scheme, which supports and brings together young people, aged 8-18, who are helping to care for a relative who has an illness or disability. It also provides facilities for other local groups and NHS staff training.

Architects: William Holgate Architects, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire
Contractor: George Booth and Sons, New Mill, West Yorkshire

Comments by Client:
“The work on the barn has created a stunning space – it’s really beautiful, light and a great space to be in.

Staff, trustees, parents and the children we work with really like the refurbished barn, and an open day for the local community elicited lots of compliments. People like being in there.

It’s a space we can do all kinds of activities in – we’re showing a film on the big screen this month and there are plans for a ceildhi next month. The kitchen means we can offer more and better catering, and it’s all accessible by wheelchair.

The barn is a great resource for our work supporting the emotional well-being of children. As well as celebrations, dance, theatre and music it will be used for training staff, conferences and presentations.”
