This project involved the retention of an existing Victorian Gothic House, which was designed in 1865, along the construction of 4 new Exhibition Halls.

The existing house and courtyards are situated on a plateau above a series of stepped grass terraces, leading down to a man-made lake. Restoration works included the removal of all timber flooring to remove dry rot. Flooring and fireplaces were removed, stored and reinstalled and the library was upgraded and all intricate molding was installed.
