Engine House & Sawmill, Tyntesfield, Somerset
The project converts an 1880’s sawmill, steam engine house and battery room into an education centre for the Tyntesfield Estate. It provides two learning spaces, an open air workshop, kitchen and toilets for practical courses and school visits.
The masonry shell has been repaired to retain the industrial sense of the place for the learning spaces. New services are contained in an extension, hidden in the quarry, with a thin timber tail that is woven back through the old building.
