An example of Valuable Architecture Protection, of Minimal Concept and Modern and Old Growing Together
“A complete architectural proposition, from concept to design, to manufacture, installation and use.” Judges Citation, The AJ Small Project Award
This is how it’s named after winning The AJ Small Project Award . Dovecote Studio campus is an internationally music campus at Snape Maltings. The concept started by giving a touch of sensitivity to the existing conditions, uniting the old structure with new materials and form.
Haworth Tompkins Architects builded upon the industrial feel of the campus the new studio, a separate structure, clad in Corten, which seems like grows from the old and almost matching the red bricks.
“Only the minimum necessary brickwork repairs were carried out to stabilise the existing ruin prior to the new structure being inserted. Decaying existing windows were left alone and vegetation growing over the dovecote was protected to allow it to continue a natural process of ageing and decay.”
We liked it very much! How about you?
