Hopkins Architects have recently finished this extremely sensitive project at the Grade I listed Holkham Hall, which was won following a competitive bid process.

Our work acts as a catalyst for the regeneration of the heart of the Estate, enhancing and clarifying the historic importance of the site by reorganising and reworking several existing buildings to produce significantly enhanced visitor facilities and staff accommodation.

It improves the arrival sequence to the Hall itself and supplements its facilities by rehabilitating two historic buildings into a new flexible events space, enlarged restaurant, museum, shop and staff facilities.

The Hall's location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty together with its listed status made the selection of an appropriately skilled architect particularly important. Hopkins are noted for their thoughtful expertise working with buildings of exceptional historic significance to produce projects which are inherently modern yet sensitive to their location and environs.
