Astley Castle is an exceptional example of how modern architecture can revive an ancient monument.

Astley Castle wins RIBA Stirling Prize

A 12th-century fortified manor which had been lying in ruins since a fire in 1978, Astley Castle had seen additions and revisions carried out in almost every century since Medieval times. In inserting a groundbreaking modern holiday home into the original castle, the architects, Witherford Watson Mann, were able to both stabilise the ruin and create the next layer of the building’s history.
 
Speaking at the presentation ceremony at the end of September, RIBA President Stephen Hodder described the project as ‘a real labour of love’, saying ‘Astley Castle is an exceptional example of how modern architecture can revive an ancient monument.’

It was a privilege to be involved in this innovative and beautiful new building.
