Stowe House is one of the finest 18th century country houses in Europe. Purcell embarked on an ambitious phased programme of repair and restoration in 1999 and continue to work there. Work included conservation and repair of the North Front, South Front, Marble Saloon and the State Rooms.
Independent Boarding School
Following 10 years of reviewing options, Radley College invited a select few architectural practices to a closed competition to explore options to increase the seating capacity in their Grade II* Listed Chapel, designed by Sir T.G.Jackson in 1893. Purcell was appointed to provide full architectural services from inception to completion. The project is being undertaken using BIM. The primary intervention is the extension of the East end, providing greater focus on the Sanctuary and the opportunity for reordering within the Chapel.
