Hanbury Hall

With its striking gardens, relaxing parkland and welcoming house, the Grade I listed Hanbury Hall is a rural oasis on Birmingham’s doorstep. A Baroque jewel hidden among the winding lanes of the Worcestershire countryside, the Hall was once a stage and backdrop for summer parties and social gatherings. Its original purpose as a place of retreat and entertainment continues today under the ownership of the National Trust.

Won through competition, our new visitor facilities for the Hall will help both the Trust and the Hall meet the demand of growing public interest in the William and Mary style hall and parkland. Our ‘New Grand Design’ provides, among other facilities, a restaurant, tearooms, a refurbished café and a visitor’s shop.

Understanding what makes Hanbury Hall special was the driving force behind our design. From form to materials, we ensured that when connecting old with new, we used the lightest touch on the existing fabric. Our addition preserves the historic character of a unique listed building while providing essential facilities that will allow the National Trust to adapt to the rapid growth in visitor numbers as well as generate an income to support the conservation work undertaken on site.
