Knighton Mill, Cranborne Chase

Set in the West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this 7,000 sq. ft scheme will replace an existing building on the site.

With respect to the original mill the main building will be built using traditional rough cut natural stone, knapped flint and clay roof tiles with Crittall windows. It includes features present on the original mill building such as a hoist dormer and regularly spaced fenestration and a large arched window to reference the mill race.

A contemporary garden wing will be constructed from glass raised on slender concrete piles and is designed to reflect and connect with the surrounding landscape. The fully-glazed entrance lobby is at the heart of the building, acting as a fulcrum linking the mill building and garden wing and looks out on to the upper and lower mill ponds. The high-quality design utilises the latest materials and renewable technologies.

Landscape features such as the water courses, mill ponds and leats along with the numerous mature trees on site will be enhanced by leading British landscape gardener Andy Sturgeon.
