Coworth House is a country house dating back to 1776, set in 240 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland. In 2008, the house was purchased by the Dorchester Collection Hotel Group, with the intention of turning Coworth House into a luxury hotel and spa.
Haddonstone was approached by the contractor, Galliford Try, to supply architectural stonework for a large-scale renovation of the hotel. The façade of the original manor house was the only aspect of the original building that was retained, and this formed the heart of a major restoration and extension project. We supplied all of the architectural stonework for the project, which included a bespoke portico, components for the extension, new build aspects and landscaping elements including balustrading.
To ensure we could replicate the authenticity of the existing stone details, our team took mouldings of the original stonework in order to match the profiles of this historic property. The core structure was then partly demolished and subsequently rebuilt. Using the mouldings taken onsite, our team created models that were further enhanced in our studio, ensuring that they faithfully represented the original designs. The final moulds for casting the stonework were then created.
The architectural components were all produced in Portland colour, and in TecStone material to guarantee a smooth finish and to minimise weathering.
