Tudor manor house identity – Barrington Court


Barrington Court was the first house the National Trust acquired in 1907. Its classic Tudor style has been shaped by several families in the past, each adding their own vision and details to the estate. This strong sense of vision, change and craftmanship became the focus for the property identity.

Architectural features of the property such as carved wooden interior panels, barley twist chimneys and the Arts and Crafts style garden became important elements of the identity. These were handcrafted as sketches, moving into a more refined set of features and ‘screens’ – which reflected those found around the gardens. Textures and materials found on the estate also became part of the overall identity palette.

~ Property identity design
