Iconic Modernism at Dartington Estate

Atkinson Architects are working on the internationally significant Modernist 1930’s house at Dartington Estate near Totnes. Part of an iconic series of dwellings designed by Lescaze and Henning for the Elmhirst family along Warren Lane.

We are in the design and planning stages to renovate the Grade II Listed dwelling and surrounding gardens for new private owners.

Over recent decades, the brick and concrete two-storey buildings with Critall steel frame windows have been subject to low-quality piecemeal modifications.

We are engaged with several bodies including The Dartington Trust, Historic England, The Twentieth Century Society and South Hams Conservation to develop a conservation strategy to repair the whole building.
