Astley Castle / Witherford Watson Mann


With no budget to restore the crumbling twelfth-century castle in Warwickshire, England, Witherford Watson Mann won The Landmark Trust competition to retrofit a holiday house within the decaying structure. Surviving since the middle ages as the home of an aristocratic English family, Astley Castle had been in ruins since the mid 20th century when a fire wiped out a hospitality operation inside it. Now it houses a contemporary two-storey residence that squats inside the building’s chunky sandstone walls — via Home Design Find
