St John the Baptist Church in Burford undertook a bold new redevelopment project at Warwick Hall to unite the church and local community through the building of a new community facility. The brief was to extend and adapt the listed building to provide a new hall flexible enough to meet the wide ranging needs of today’s end users. The challenge was to deliver a new confident community facility within one of the most historically sensitive church building settings in the country.
Conservation of the West Front
Conservation and residential architects Acanthus Clews – Dinton Hall is grade II* listed building dating from the 16th Century. The building had been converted to multiple dwellings and was in a poor state of repair due to neglect and dry rot attack. Serious structural defects were also apparent, due mostly to the poor 20th century intervention work. Acanthus Clews were appointed as Architects for the restoration project which would return the building to a substantial single house.
