Curwen Hall is a Grade I listed managed ruin and Scheduled Ancient Monument in Workington, Cumbria. Mosedale Gillatt Architects are working with Allerdale Borough Council as part of a phased programme of works to repair and maintain this structure.
‘Mosedale Gillatt Architects, led by Director Jenny Gillatt as a Specialist Conservation Architect – was appointed by Allerdale Borough Council to undertake an assessment of the structure with a view to identifying where it is at significant risk and where emergency works should be undertaken to halt decay and assure its future. The structure is extensive and complex, and Jenny liaised with English Heritage from the outset in the production of a comprehensive document that has enabled us to move forward with greater clarity and understanding.’ Allerdale Borough Council
Combining our expertise in combining new interventions with historic structures the practice prepared a ‘visioning study‘ looking at options for the future use, interpretation and accessibility of the building.
