Waddesdon Manor

On Friday we attended the opening of a new pavilion at Waddesdon Manor designed by the architects Carmody Groarke. We worked on the corridor signage for the pavilion (mostly beautiful toilet signs!). The signage is made from solid patinated brass and the forms take reference from the flourishes of the eighteenth century interiors of the manor.

Waddesdon Manor was built over a century ago by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild. It was created as a place to entertain guests at Ferdinand’s famous ‘Saturday to Monday’ house parties. Now open to the public in partnership with the National Trust, the house and gardens exhibit the Rothschild’s extensive art collection.
