Clandon Park restoration: landscape architects join team

Landscape architect, Robert Myers Associates (RMA) has been appointed by the National Trust to join the restoration team at Clandon Park in Surrey, after a fire devastated the 18th-century Palladian house in 2015.

Following an international search, in January of this year, a team led by Allies and Morrison was selected to take forward the restoration and renewal of Clandon.

While the gardens were left untouched by the fire, they form part of the restoration brief for the design team, to bring Clandon Park back to life. Following a joint tender process between the National Trust and Allies and Morrison, RMA was the unanimous choice for the significant role.

Once completed, the gardens will provide a harmonious and beautiful setting for the restored mansion and a place for people to relax, recharge and play.
