Gallery: 1800-Year-Old Chedworth Roman Villa Wins 2013 RIBA Architectur...

 
This £2.2m project protects the ruins with an understated, lightweight shelter that ensures the archeological remains are the center of attention.

London-based Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios worked with the National Trust to interpret the archaeology of the Roman remains in a fresh way that protects and exhibits the buildings in the 21st century. This £2.2m project protects the ruins with an understated, lightweight shelter that ensures the archeological remains are the center of attention. The new shelter wraps the ruins with neutral wood exterior cladding, while the interior is open to the site and includes 250 square meters of well-preserved mosaics.

The villa will now weather gracefully thanks to the protection that this project offers.  Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios also updated the Victorian visitor center and its landscape. The setting of this preservation project has been enhanced in order to improve site access and visitor enjoyment. It is a must-see for those interested in historical ruins and artifacts.
