Dorchester Hotel & Spa, Coworth Park, Ascot (2011)
Cast stone adds a touch of class
Haddonstone's landscape ornaments and architectural cast stone has been used by hotels around the world to enhance new build and restoration projects.
A new luxury 5 star country house hotel and spa at Coworth Park, Ascot has made extensive use of bespoke cast stone details and garden ornaments from UKCSA member Haddonstone.
Coworth Park is the most recent hotel opened by international luxury hotel group the Dorchester Collection. Set in 240 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland, the 70-room hotel is based around a Georgian manor house.
Haddonstone worked with EPR Architects and main contractor Galliford Try to match the profiles of the original historic structure by taking mouldings from the stonework on-site before the core structure was partly demolished and subsequently rebuilt.
Haddonstone supplied string courses, parapets, copings, window cills, portico columns and entablature and decorative canopies to the main manor house building, as well as curved, ramped and standard cast stone balustrading for the outdoor terrace and gardens.
The use of Haddonstone cast stone ornaments and balustrading helped the project win a Landscape Institute Award in November 2012.
