Client: Dixton Manor
Architect: Lees Associates
Contracror: DA Cook of Winchcombe
Type of works: supply of Frank Allart door furniture in bronze.
This Grade II listed Cotswold manor house, which dates back to 1591, has been delicately and sensitively restored in close collaboration with the local conservation department and English Heritage. With 20th century additions demolished before work began, a new extension to the south range provides a new family entrance in keeping with the house. A glazed cloister links the older west range with the new extension on the south range.
Sustainability was a key factor in this development with a biomass boiler providing the estates hot water and heating; fuelled by timber from the property.
Working with architects Lees Associates and contractors DA Cook of Winchcombe who are well practiced in restoration work and new build construction, Strada provided Frank Allart door furniture in real bronze.
