St. John’s Orchard

A derelict convent that has been re-imagined as 4 luxury townhouses - blending the historic with the new.

A bespoke architectural language was created for the project which combined both contemporary and ecclesiastical references.
      Each home is unified through a monumental oak stair, which spirals up the five levels of the house in a continuous ribbon.
        A pallet of fumed oak, rough cut Portland stone and seamless detailing, give the houses richness and gravitas, whilst still being domestic and everyday.
