Monkbridge House

Client: Monkbridge House (Bed & Breakfast)
Builder: Ebor Construction
Architect: Native Architects 

This project sought to modernise and re-order Monkbridge House in the centre of York. The brief was to give the period property a fresh appearance, and create a more comfortable, quieter and attractive environment for guests, whilst using sympathetic new materials, combined with traditional craftsmanship, to restore the external facades and internal spaces of the building.

The building has many original period features, which were unsympathetically presented, and low quality, inappropriate alterations with a detrimental effect on the appearance. To improve this the layouts of all the bedrooms were reconfigured and the rear dormers opened up, which now have wonderful views of York Minster.
