Capel Manor House, Kent

In 2009 Ewan

Cameron was approached to design a modern guest pavilion that would sit next to an Italianate orangery from 1860 and across from the Clients’ main house, an iconic glass and steel pavilion erected in 1971. Ewan Cameron’s response was a formal composition of separate planar elements to frame a formal garden; an architectural haiku.

The existing Capel Manor House and pavilion are spectacularly sited upon the raised, arcaded podium of a ruined Italianate mansion on a leafy estate that was the home of Jane Austen’s fore-bears since 1569. It overlooks a wooded valley in the Kentish Weald near Horsmonden, Kent.

The resulting proposal was much inspired by the Architect’s visits to the temples and zen gardens of Kyoto; in particular the idea of a building as a frame through which we contemplate nature.

Ewan Cameron Architects worked closely with engineers David Narro Associates, to achieve the “floating” lightweight roof structure, clad in zinc. Kent based builders Green Construction ensured that the minimalist detailing was executed to an exacting standard.
