ArchitectureLIVE has been appointed to give a new lease of life to a building with historic merit in Haslemere. Whilst the building is not listed, it is of great interest to historians as it was part of the Haslemere Weaving and Peasant Tapestry Industry from the turn of the 20th Century.  

At first, the property was used as a carpenter workshop, but soon became part of the Peasants Arts movement whose local founders wanted to preserve traditional arts and crafts, with specific emphasis on tapestry. Later the building was used as a school and since the end of the Second World War has been a private residence.

In its current form, the property is in urgent need of modernisation and building maintenance. ArchitectureLIVE’s brief is to sensitively refurbish and extend the property, respecting its historic origins whilst applying the principals of Passivhaus to radically improve the building structure's energy performance.
