Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA West Midlands award winning building by the architects who designed it.
As part of the Great British Building series of events showcasing 2016's award winners, The Master's House RIBA West Midlands Building of the year will host a talk and tour by Buter Hegarty Architects.
Located in the market town of Ledbury, The Master's House, is a Grade II-listed* building, and one of the remaining fragments of the medieval St. Katherine's hospital site, founded in 1232. Prior to this project, the exquisite timber frame medieval structure at the core of this building was invisible to visitors, being encased in later Georgian and Victorian additions, and hidden away from view by poor quality 20th century internal adaptions.
Butler Hegarty Architect’s forensic exploration, imaginative reshaping, and painstaking restoration of this building, was supported throughout by the enthusiasm of the building’s band of local volunteer ‘friends’, and was sustained by the commitment of owner client, Herefordshire Council. Together they have successful integrated an accessible design into the historic fabric of The Master's House, and reconnected the building to its context and local community.
