BENTLEY PRIORY, STANMORE
New residential units in the grounds of Bentley Priory
Bentley Priory is a Grade II * Listed house surrounded by registered parkland near Stanmore, on the north edge of London. The original eighteenth century house was remodelled by Sir John Soane and further altered in the nineteenth century, before being used by the RAF as the Headquarters for Fighter Command during the Second World War. Decommissioned in 2008, the house has been restored and converted into a museum and 8 high quality apartments, with 95 new residential units in the grounds on the site of disused and utilitarian RAF structures. The design and layout of the new buildings are informed by the historic landscape and the simple, restrained architecture of Soane’s mansion.
