Dumfries House, The Laundry Artists Studios
This project involved the complete restoration of the former laundry building from a state of complete dilapidation into high-quality artist studios.
The roofless shell required foliage removal and a substantial consolidation exercise carried out on the existing walls, the new roof required the exposed open beam trusses to be individually crafted to accommodate a historic bulge in the line of the wall head.
Scope of Work
A complete internal rebuild from the bare stone walls incorporating new underground drainage whilst reinstalling the original stone slab floor on top of a new insulated concrete floor, the incorporation of a new stone staircase, and the reinstatement of the internal finishes to a traditional style in keeping with buildings throughout the rest of the Grade A listed estate. The building received new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services and the main heat source is through a ground sourced heat pump serving wall mounted heat emitters.
