Lowther Castle

Lowther, Cumbria

September 2017

Lowther Castle, in Cumbria, is famed for its romantic ruined monument and magical gardens. This extensive project involved the redesign of Lowther Castle’s visitor facilities and brand. We delivered a new café and shop in the courtyard, an admissions area, and a permanent exhibition telling the story of the castle, and the Yellow Earl. We incorporated motifs such as scaffolding to evoke the castle’s history – from falling into disrepair to its recent and ongoing restoration. We collaborated with Cosima Dinkel, who provided graphics and new branding.
