SCHOOL – Herefordshire Cathedral Boarding House

SCHOOL – Herefordshire Cathedral Boarding House

Location: Herefordshire
Type of project: Commercial Client – Full Interior Design & Interior Architecture service working alongside the architects and builders

Previously a hotel, we helped the school renovate this Listed Grade II Georgian building that is steeped in history into a boarding house for 30 students. The property has the most incredible original features that deserve to be respected while making the rooms for the 30+ teenagers to dwell in modern in their feel and functionality but somewhere they enjoyed spending time. The public rooms, which were far more traditional, needed to be somewhere inviting and enjoyable to be in all the while retaining the wooden panelled dining room and enhancing the huge Georgian windows.  The traditional feel had to be practical so our biggest challenge was specifying and supplying robust furniture and soft furnishings that while wholly commercial in purpose didn’t feel commercial once installed.

“Working with Verity and her team on the Hereford Cathedral School project was an absolute joy. Not only did Verity give clear and concise instructions she understood all of the factors involved with a scheme of this nature i.e. budget, availability of raw materials, timescale for manufacturers etc. With all of this in mind she was able to flex to meet every requirement and created a look and feel that I know the client is thrilled with and one that we are all equally proud of being a part of.
We would certainly recommend Rascal & Roses to any of our new or current school clients and very much look forward to working with them in the future.”
