Hadlow Tower, Hadlow
Thomas Ford & Partners for The VIVAT Trust
Contract £3.1m. GIA 401m2

The ruined brick stump of this Georgian viewing tower and folly has been re-iced with the rich ornamentation of its earlier life. A forensic study underpins this project which also inserts a new steel structure in the core to make a flat that the building preservation client lets out. A labour of love, ‘this is an extraordinary achievement,’ said the judges.
