Future projects

Buildings on the horizon

Here at Landmark, we are approached with around 150 endangered historic buildings each year. Here are a few buildings that may become future projects.

  • Calverley Old Hall has been a Landmark property for many years, however the rest of the site – and the most historically significant – has fallen into disuse and such decay that it is currently on the Heritage at Risk Register. We launched an international design competition to find an innovative architect to revitalise the whole site for an exciting new future. Learn more here.

  • Ibsley Watch Tower is one of 12 airfields in the New Forest. It opened in 1940 and deployed military aircraft such as Spitfires in its lifetime. The building is now derelict and is held on a 99 year lease by the RAF Ibsley Heritage Trust, from the Somerley Estate.

  • Dover Town Hall, also known as ‘Maison Dieu’ is a large Grade I listed complex of buildings, dating back to 1204. In 1835, the building underwent a dramatic transformation to include major civic spaces, a law court, prison cells and a mayoral block. It is this Mayor’s Parlour Block that we are hoping might become a Landmark. 

  • We are thrilled to be working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) exploring how we can collaborate with other partners to save Mavisbank, Scotland’s first Palladian villa. Classical architecture became key in moulding Scotland’s buildings and national spirit and this makes Mavisbank one of the most important survivals in Scotland. This project has recently been shortlisted for a Heritage Horizon Award. Click here to learn more.
