Designed by AWW, The Cornwall Hotel is located in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Conservation was a key element of the brief with the estate’s historic setting and natural beauty a great asset. It was the inspiration for integrating elements of nature and the external parkland surroundings in both the architectural and interior design. The development respects and sensitively complements the outstanding flora, fauna and setting of the estate and the integrity of its buildings.
The link building which houses the reception, brasserie and kitchen seamlessly ties the old house to the extension wing where the 56 Woodland Bedrooms are located. Where the reception links to the old house, the architects have retained the existing rubble stone exterior wall as an interior feature as tribute to the history of the building and celebration of rejuvenation for generations to come. A flat-pack timber cassette was used both for the Woodland Lodges, and for the 56 bedroom extension behind the original Manor House, to minimise disruption to the surrounding Victorian woodland and wildlife.
