We are delighted to have been involved in the refurbishment of Heckfield Place, originally a beautiful family home and now operating as an exclusive hotel in the heart of the countryside in Hampshire, England.
Atkey and Company worked alongside architects Spratley & Partners to create bespoke joinery detail throughout the hotel, including panelled door sets, architrave and skirting.
Heckfield Place, Hampshire. A new lease of life for the Georgian manor house
Originally a Georgian manor house built around 1770, the property showed evidence of having undergone refurbishment during the 1820s, with further works also dating from the Edwardian period. The house has now been comprehensively refurbished and its layouts altered during its conversion to an elegant hotel.
Atkey’s initial design brief was to retain and enhance the original character that was still present in areas of the manor house, whilst respecting the successive phases of work that had taken place at the property over the past 300 years. This included meeting acoustic and fire performance requirements without compromising the period aesthetics and proportions.
Atkey and Company has helped to rejuvenate the grandeur of this beautiful historic property
Based on the success of the initial phase of the refurbishment, Atkey and Company was asked to design and produce the doors and mouldings for the new-build part of the hotel accommodation, this time with a more rustic character.
In all, over 250 door sets were designed and created by Atkey and Company. Each element was in keeping with the respective period of the different areas of the property, and our work has helped to rejuvenate – and embellish – the grandeur of this beautiful historic property.
