We’ve hooked Hooke

Posted on: 12th March 2015

Carpenter Oak & Woodland are delighted to have been awarded a very exciting 20th century conservation project at the Architectural Association’s Hooke Park in Dorset.

The conservation project in question is the workshop which was originally designed by Richard Burton of ABK and Frei Otto and completed in 1989 and has been used ever since by Design and Make students and visiting members of the Architectural Association alike for the past 16 years.

The conservation work to this innovative educational facility is the restoration of the polycarbonate roof lights which have suffered at the hands of time.

Charley Brentnall, Conservation Director at Carpenter Oak & Woodland said “We are delighted to be involved in a 20th century conservation project and applying our knowledge and understanding of conservation to repair this much loved facility.”

He goes on to say: “We were awarded the contract because Hooke Park trust that our respect and understanding of the building and the repairs that are required are handed with the upmost sensitivity.”

Work is due to commence in May and will take approximately three weeks.
