The ACE Foundation is a Cambridge based charity which helps promote cultural and international understanding through the advancement of education, serving communities in the UK and worldwide. They recently bought a Victorian Granary on the outskirts of Cambridge with the intention of creating an inspiring space for education, culture, music and the arts.
We have been asked to undertake the detail design and implementation of the refurbishment and new build works. The Victorian granary is already functioning as a small performance space, this will be connected with a new glazed linking structure to an existing barn which will be converted into office space, a dilapidated cart lodge will become space for a ceramics studio. A walled garden will be created within the original farm yard.
