NEW BUILD GYMNASIUM
AND GARAGES,

COTSWOLD MANOR HOUSE

WG Carter has constructed a new leisure building along the line of an existing 3m high dry-stone wall within the grounds of a 17th century Cotswold manor house in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds.

In order to build the new gym, the existing dry-stone wall was dismantled and reconstructed as an integral part of the new curved glazed building.

Underground, Secant piling was used to form a concrete lined basement, complete with a CDM membrane. The basement houses the mechanical and electrical plant for the main house including the boilers, water softener, air conditioning unit and water pumps as well as the electrical distribution equipment for the whole estate.

On the ground floor the building is used as a personal gymnasium. The gym has oak flooring with large specialist glazed screens incorporating curved glass that looks out onto the garden. The dry-stone wall wraps around the outside of the building, encompassing the gym.

Also on the site is a triple garage block that is built from Cotswold stone, with lime washed exterior walls and a traditional Stonesfield slate roof. Three sets of large oak garage doors provide access to the bright clean interior.

The project was undertaken as part of a major renovation of the existing Grade ll listed 17th century manor house. View the case study here.
