CONTRACT VALUE: UNDISCLOSED
LOCATION: FROME, SOMERSET
CLIENT: 42 ACRE RETREAT
CONTRACT PERIOD: 2019 - 2020 

Mador Architects have designed a masterplan for the ecological transformation of a 100 acre site in Somerset. The scheme connects two historic estates in an Area of Outstanding Beauty in Somerset to create a retreat – hosting programmes exploring meditation, wellness and spirituality – and a high-end resort and restaurant embedded in a rewilded landscape. Guest experience across the site is embedded in and connected to soil, nature, and processes of wild tending and food cultivation. A wild spa on an island creates facilities for steam, sauna, treatment and swimming in the midst of a restored wetland habitat.

Mador Architects were team-lead on a consortium of experts in ecology, sustainable energy, services, landscape and the wider on-site specialists in the evolution of the brief and masterplan for creation of a groundbreaking combination of landscape restoration and luxury experience.
