Arrol Architects has developed a strong working relationship with the private owners of the Grade II* Listed Combermere Abbey since their first appointment in 1985. Works throughout the years to the former Abbot’s Hall and lodging have included: repairs to its spectacular Great Hall, that was fully restored from its prior poor condition; extensive repairs to the medieval framing and roof; the reinstatement of the early 19th Century plastered facade; the repositioning of pinnacles and battlements; and the full repair of the north end of the Abbey.
The Estate also includes a number of out buildings which support the Abbey. Arrol Architects worked with the client over a number of years to ensure that all buildings were repaired and restored, and given a new use to ensure the extended commercial viability life of the Abbey. In the illustrated case, a large 19th Century stableblock was converted into holiday let accommodation and conference centre use.
