Hardy House

A home for an artist

Project
Information

Location: Box, Wiltshire

Client: Hardy House Gallery

Status: Phase 1 Complete

Key Materials: Bath Stone, Galvanised Steel, Patent glazing, Resin Concrete flooring, Ash timber flooring.

Hardy House is a former club building in the heart of a Wiltshire village. Converted in the 1980’s the building needed updating and alteration to meet the client’s needs whose brief called for the refurbishment of the existing house with the provision of new home working facilities for their artistic activities. Comprehensive refurbishment of the existing house created a clean, modern interior with studio and gallery as well as more conventional spaces and includes improvements to reduce running costs and increase thermal performance. A new glazed canopy to the rear provides a useful veranda space to enjoy views across the garden and a sheltered space to park the car and enter the house. Planning consent was also obtained for an independent studio building in the garden, as yet unbuilt.

Hardy House was short listed for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2014

Designscape Architects' first class design and build management service gave us an outstanding house at affordable cost.
