After the 18th-century Clandon Park Palladian house in Surrey suffered a devastating fire in 2015, the path to its restoration is just beginning. The National Trust, who owns the historic property, and Malcolm Reading Consultants jointly launched an international competition this past March to ultimately find the multi-disciplinary design team who will be in charge of restoring the project. Six shortlisted architect-led teams were then invited to produce their own reinterpretations of reimagining Clandon Park, which you can check out below.
In designing their proposals, teams had to focus on creating a careful and accurate restoration, making use of salvaged materials, and introducing more modern spaces and technology where appropriate. The shortlisted concepts will also be on display at Clandon Park starting August 23.
