Allies and Morrison wins international design competition to restore, reimagine and rebuild Clandon Park

Following an international design competition which attracted 60 entries from some of the world’s leading designers, architects Allies and Morrison have been chosen to bring Clandon Park back to life after a devastating fire in 2015.

Allies and Morrison is a leading UK architectural practice known for its inspiring designs and the variety of its projects, including work with historic places. From World Heritage sites to Grade-I listed buildings, their past projects in the heritage sector range from the award-winning refurbishment of the Royal Festival Hall in London to the careful restoration of Blackwell in Cumbria, and the confident, modern insertion of a new planetarium at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

Allies and Morrison was unanimously selected from six finalists by a jury comprised of figures from the fields of heritage, architecture and the arts, including Ptolemy Dean, Surveyor of the Fabric at Westminster Abbey, David Bickle Director of Design, Exhibition and FuturePlan at the V&A Museum, architectural historian, Clive Aslet, and local resident, Dame Penelope Keith.

The jury praised the winning team’s bold yet balanced approach, to “respect the quality and character of the mansion house in its historic setting”. The jury found the team’s submission to be a clear and thoughtful proposal, which balanced continuity and cohesion with an appropriate level of drama and excitement.

The proposed concept is at an early design stage and Allies and Morrison will now work closely with the National Trust to develop a final design (subject to gaining the necessary approvals) which will restore and rebuild the 18th-century Palladian house in Surrey.

 

Allies and Morrison has invited Purcell to join as conservation architect, with structural engineer Price & Myers and services engineer Max Fordham. A landscape architect will be appointed after further consultation with the National Trust.

The next stage of the project includes a detailed feasibility study and consultations, after which a more developed design will be able to be shared.
