ROLE: PROJECT ARCHITECT & CONTRACT ADMINISTRATOR

Chris Granger enabled and project managed the refurbishment of the under valued and poorly respected circulation space between the school and its sports hall with award winning artist Charlie Winney to create a dynamic and vibrant thoroughfare. The new design has accentuated the journey and sporting potential of the student body who use it on a daily basis.

 

Chris’s determination prevailed to drive new design in a forgotten space. The installation is made up with a series of mirrors and strips of large photographic prints – only by standing in specific positions within the underpass, do the strips of images come together to form one complete photograph. The images used are those of the school’s pupils playing sport. The client agrees that this intervention has transformed the underpass into something amazing.

What do you think of this Victorian ceiling in the style of Jacobean X Georgian. It stretches across all the ages, periods and styles in true Victorian opulence. Do you know where it is....? #conservation #limeplaster #lakedistrictnationalpark #worldheritagesite #visitcumbria #cumbrialife #lime #dontmakethemliketheyusedto

A recent image of a scheme being developed at CGA within the Lake District National Park. With a close eye on traditional forms, mass, scale and materials, we aim to create a modest building and parking facility in a wooded setting which enables a wide range of problems on the highway to be solved.  More details to follow in good time.
