new monastery

hmad|architects were appointed to develop the design and obtain planning consent for a new monastery connected to a Grade II listed Church of the Resurrection. Our innovative design uses the 'Mandorla' plan form, an ancient symbol of protection long associated with Christianity.


There are twenty-six Brothers' bedrooms arranged over two stories, each offering a unique view over the landscaped wooded valley. The bedrooms are arranged radially around a central atrium, which forms a double height circulation space housing the library.
