The Elmhirst Centre, Dartington

The Elmhirst Centre is part of one of the most beautiful Estates in south Devon, at Dartington. Our brief was to provide a vision that fuses contemporary and heritage values, leading to the creation of a premier spiritual centre that celebrates both the historic and cultural values, whilst sensitively designing a solution to support the social and cultural life of visitors and staff.

Part of the strategy for social interaction was a high quality, contemporary architectural solution with sustainable and sensitive design practice: Sequencing continuous functions, efficiency, fitness for use and adaptability whilst blending heritage, contemporary design, landscape and ethical values augmented seamlessly into a holistic/living environment.
