Dunham House Masterplan

Hard and soft landscape masterplan for a Grade II listed building

Southwell Diocese in Nottinghamshire conceived a plan to replace their old office building with a more contemporary structure, while regenerating the historic Dunham House to accommodate luxury apartments.

A Grade II listed building, Dunham House is one of a number of Georgian Prebendal houses and associated gardens in central Southwell. Requiring expert landscape consultancy for the project, Southwell Diocese appointed Influence.

Working in collaboration with Clive Brooks Architects, we prepared an overall masterplan with hard and soft landscape plans for parking, a communal office space and gardens.

The garden spaces around and between the new office building and the retained Dunham House have been designed to evoke a Prebendal garden.

We achieved this by maximising the available space and creating a transparent boundary between the public and private areas.
