UEA Earlham Hall
This project for the UEA law school at Earlham Hall involved the restoration of a group of Grade II* listed curtilage buildings clustered around a courtyard. The scheme provides a suite of seminar rooms for the school, and a law clinic to allow members of the public access to legal consultation.
The sensitive conversion provides levels of usability fit for 21st Century University use and provides a unique teaching facility for the law school.
By re-using the existing stables, coach house and staff accommodation, this sensitive conversion retains existing features and finishes to tell the story of the previous uses. Domestic features such as an existing stair and stove have been retained in what was the domestic wing, saddle hooks and timber panelling have been kept in the tack room, and stalls and stable blocks remain in the stables.
The scheme also provides an appropriate and attractive courtyard setting to Earlham Hall, creating a series of uplifting spaces for staff and students to enjoy.
LSI produced inspiring conceptual plans & elevations together with detailed sections and visualisations.
