Bricks made the traditional way

Baddesley Clinton | Warwickshire B93

A unique project set within an English Heritage-designated conservation area, The Convent features a largely unaltered collection of late 19th century buildings with the addition of a number of new builds to create 18 executive homes.

Built on the site of Poor Clares Convent, which was founded in 1850 and closed after 160 years, the project is the result of an extensive restoration and development programme, taking care to sensitively preserve the historic architecture, stained glass and many original features.

Lightly Weathered Waterstruck bricks were selected for their ability to closely match the original buildings.

The naturally weathered appearance of these characterful handmade bricks enables the new build elements to sit comfortably within their historical surroundings.
