GREAT NEWS! Crosby Granger Architects have made three senior promotions in response to our ambitious growth plans and the increasing demand for our heritage consultancy services.

Gordon Blunt joined the practice in September 2020 and is tasked with managing and improving the studio’s production of information, knowledge sharing and providing technical oversight on major projects.

Co-founder Chris Granger said: “We have a solid foundation in the heritage sector from which to expand our work and for which we are seeing increasing demand. So we are very pleased about the three appointments.

“We also act as specialist consultants to other architects, surveyors and estate managers who need high-level building conservation advice or technical guidance. They are often wrestling alone with the same problems we are tackling with our bigger team of experts.

This residential project aimed to revitalize and expand an existing Lake District Villa, addressing unsuccessful attempts at improvement over the last two decades. The client’s vision was to craft a spacious, dynamic, and design-centric concept, involving the replacement of an outdated single-story kitchen and family room. Crucial to the project was the enhancement of panoramic views showcasing the breathtaking landscape.

Everyone was saddened saddened by the recent fire at the great Gothic revival Grade II* Chapel and Grade II Junior House at Ushaw by Edward Pugin. However, we are confident we can bring this wonderful structure back to practical, economically viable use.

St Johns Church Blackburn dates back to 1788 and was used as a place of worship until 1975 when it closed and was later transferred to council ownership to become an arts centre.

Having sustained significant fire damage in 2019, which left the building open to the elements, approval of the plans would see new life injected into the town centre building.

Working with design team leader OMI Architects, the proposals respond to the strong geometries of the existing building and incorporate the restoration of the surviving historic features.

The innovation hub will form the first phase of the £250m masterplan for Blackburn town centre, providing lettable desks, coworking spaces and 20 offices.

This small multi use hall provides a much needed resource for this school in Richmond London. Retractable seating allows the space to quickly adapt to the schools needs with games, assembly, play time and catered events being held in the hall.

With its decorative saw tooth roof and concealed strip lighting, this simple but flexible space provides the school with an instantly recognisable space which delights both, children, staff and visitors.

This complex but rewarding small project provides @levenshall with a  new bakery which supports is already popular @levenskitchen.

Formed entirely in traditional materials, located in Bertha's Shed (you'll have to visit and ask who Bertha is), this has seen an underused agricultural unit brought into good use for both staff and visitors of the hall.

A delight to work on with thanks to the family and staff of Levens Hall for their hard work and patience.
