BDP’s work to bring grade-I-listed Lancaster Castle into public use provides a masterclass in sensitive restoration. The oldest parts of the castle date back to the 12th century, and the restored buildings were constructed as a prison more than 200 years ago, remaining in that role until 2012. A detailed condition survey took a year to complete, and the phased programme of works has so far seen seven buildings given new purpose – including exhibition space, retail and a café – and seven more made weathertight, all while facilitating the continued use of on-site court buildings. New interventions are subtle, elegant and enhance the historic setting with carefully chosen materials and meticulous detailing.
