The Design of the New Monastery

The Scheme

Feilden Clegg Bradley, architects of Bath, set to work designing the new monastery in late summer 2004, but not before Peter Clegg, Gill Smith and Louise Blackler, the project architects, had experienced a day in the life of the nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. They even got up in time for Vigils at 6.00 a.m!

They listened to our ideas and thoughts, and soon a new Stanbrook Abbey was taking shape on paper.

The scheme

The architects were asked to provide

- 29 cells
- a refectory and kitchen
- offices
- a calefactory, chapter house and sacristy
- novitiate
- library
- laundry and sewing areas
- cloisters
- infirmary

- church
- parlours
- meeting rooms
- exhibition space

- bedrooms
- dining room and kitchen
- library
