Bishop Percy’s award

A project which transformed one of Shropshire’s oldest and best-known buildings has been recognised in an award scheme. The major renovation of Bishop Percy’s House in Bridgnorth has received a commendation in the annual Shropshire Council Conservation and Design Awards.

Vic Johnson of Johnson Design Partnership, who designed the conversion of the 16th -century half-timbered property in Cartway into a tea room and holiday apartments, says, “The awards are intended to acknowledge and celebrate the best architecture, urban design, planning, building conservation and landscape architecture in Shropshire so we’re very pleased that Bishop Percy’s House has been included.”

The transformation of the property finished in 2018 after four years of meticulous planning and careful restoration work. The project also included the construction of two separate contemporary homes overlooking the river.

“Bishop Percy’s House is a striking town centre landmark and we were thrilled with the way it was brought back to life,” adds Vic. “This was an important initiative for Bridgnorth and for Johnson Design Partnership as it incorporated refurbishment and remodelling of the historical building and an innovative, modern element to the rear – it’s a bold blend of ancient and modern.”
