Stonewood Design’s new home in the heart of a busy high street opens the practice up to the community. The original grade II listed building started life as a malthouse and most recently was a Chinese takeaway. It had been gutted in the 1980s and was in poor condition. A colourful goal post structure was inserted in the middle of the building and a mezzanine introduced between the two former storeys to give three connected floors rather than a separate upstairs and downstairs. The internal fabric is exposed and a metal stair sits in a full height void. The entrance is a communal meeting space and models are displayed in the shop window.
