Clementsbury, Brickendon

Clementsbury | Brickendon

This development is located in the Hertfordshire greenbelt and involved the conversion of derelict grade II listed farm buildings and stables to form 23 houses.

Work included the restoration of much of the original brick fabric of the buildings and required research and reports into the local Great Crested Newt and bat populations with measures undertaken to protect this wildlife during and after building work. A complete re-build of the tower was needed due to failing existing brickwork, all to photographic records, to form a bespoke single residence with a roof top garden. Surface water drainage is used to revitalise the surrounding shelterbelts of trees and hedgerow.

The project received an RIBA award in 2003.
