Scope of Project:
Construction of new office space for Wiltshire District Council.

Stanton Williams were commissioned to design a new office space for Wiltshire Council. They married Bourne Hill House (Grade II listed) with a new building to create open plan offices that enable the views of the surrounding gardens to be enjoyed.

This project formed part of campus and operational delivery programme to reduce the number of council offices in order to decrease the council’s carbon footprint.

The design team worked closely with English Heritage to ensure that delicate repairs were made to the historic building avoiding any re-building of the structure and to ensure traditional materials, such as natural stone, was used.
