Restoration of a former bakery into a home and office.
The property had been empty for 40 years and was in a dilapidated state, The Bake House is a former bakery in the centre of Bromyard, an historic market town in Herefordshire, an hour away from Birmingham. We had already been working in the Shropshire county on our award-winning Beech Gardens scheme and more recently the Marston Hub, both in Ludlow. We love working in the beautiful rural settings, enjoy the challenge of heritage and conservation in this context and decided we want to keep working with the communities here.
Director Bob Ghosh purchased the derelict bakery and residential house three years ago and has undertaken extensive renovation of The Bakehouse to create a home and office. Bob’s son Finn lives in Hereford making the reason to live there personal and professional.
The challenge with this property was spectacular. A 17th century former pub, converted into a home by the Georgians, then a shop by the Victorians, and an industrial bakery added in the 1950’s. Now lovingly restored, the layers revealed, and transformed into 21st Century studio and home.
Completed December 2019
