About

This rebuild of an c.18th stables building provides a new restaurant for a grade II listed Inn in Cambridgeshire. The new roof structure employs an innovative inverted cats cradle truss, formed from oak and mild steel, which also references typical roof construction techniques of the building’s era.

The proposals included re-using original clunch brick walls, stabilising the existing structure to prevent further damage and insulating the existing building to meet current building regulations.

Completed by Tom Dawson whilst project architect at Rosalind Bird Architects.
