What we’re up to this month – September

Highfield House, Castle Cary

This month we are starting work on a new care facility in the grounds of a residential home Grade II listed Highfield House in Castle Cary Conservation Area.   Nick Jackson, arboriculturist, is carrying out a tree survey and we are designing a freestanding building in the garden to provide respite care for 3 resident and an alternative option from the main house which currently accommodates 22 residents. The design take its cues from the range of workshops and offices which occur in Pithers Yard on the other side of the brick boundary wall and these provide a precedent for a single storey building of traditional design with a double Roman clay tile roof.
