Synopsis
Having renovated a former chapel, Sheryl and her husband Andrew Hollins, both equestrians, were not phased when they took on the project to convert the four-story building into a stylish space to retreat to after a day on horse back. Situated in the New Forest National Park the tower, which dates back to the 1900s, was in disrepair both inside and out. Brickwork was extensively cleaned to bring back the original colour and, to let in more light, vast Crittall-framed windows replaced dark medieval ones. Inside, the architects added contemporary structural features to compliment the old brickwork, which acts as the perfect backdrop for the home owners’ retro furniture and unique vintage finds. An impressive hallway, with an encaustic tiled floor and Brooklyn spider pendant, occupies the ground floor of this 645-square-foot tower which culminates in a vaulted bathroom at the top.
