RESTORATION OF A GEORGIAN INTERIOR - Commended

CUMBERLAND SUITE at HAMPTON COURT PALACE

Client: Historic Royal Palaces

Architect: Purcell

http://hockleyanddawson.co.uk/

This suite of rooms was created by William Kent in the 1730s as private apartments for George II’s son the Duke of Cumberland. For two centuries it served as grace and favour accommodation before becoming a gallery in 1952. Redecoration in the 1960s further degraded Kent’s original scheme and the joinery was also deteriorating. That has been sensitively repaired. In the Withdrawing Room old panel mouldings have been reinstated (or recovered from beneath veneer) and the Presence Chamber and Large Light Closet have been restored to their original appearance. A set of rooms that had become a dark cul-de-sac in the depths of the Palace has been dramatically transformed.

47 CANONBURY SQUARE, ISLINGTON

Client: Jacqueline Anne and Anthony Pointing

Architect: Gary Butler - Butler & Hegarty

http://hockleyanddawson.co.uk/

47 CANONBURY SQUARE, ISLINGTON is an uplifting project that repairs the truncated end of a typical London terrace dating from 1831. The missing house was partly demolished in 1937, supposedly because of structural problems, although apocryphally because the landlord wanted rid of undesirable tenants. The ground floor elevation survived and together with neighbouring houses provided the evidence need for meticulous restoration. There is something deeply satisfying about giving back to mutilated terraces their proper form and dimensions – in this instance the beneficial effect is magnified as the terrace sits in a square, so a regained sense of enclosure is added to the mix. Plenty of damaged Georgian terraces have been pieced back together with anaemic, half-hearted infill, but this project does far more than pay lip service. It is an extraordinary accomplishment in an ordinary environment.
