International design competition
While part of Calverley Old Hall has been a Landmark holiday let for many years, the rest of the site – and the most historically significant – has fallen into disuse and such decay that it is currently on the Heritage at Risk Register. In 2017 we launched an international design competition to find an innovative architect to revitalise the whole site for an exciting new future.
75 firms from across the world submitted designs to revive Calverley Old Hall. During a rigorous judging process, we shortlisted nine architects before narrowing the list down to award-winning English firm Cowper Griffith. The architect's conceptual designs will now be developed further, working closely with our team of surveyors and historians. We hope to launch a fundraising appeal in 2019 and start work on site in 2020.
