Park Lane Stables RDA
We're so delighted to be working with Nat O'Rourke and her team of Trustees on the refurbishment and upgrade of Park Lane Stables in Teddington!
"We love our architect’s vision for the refurb and we hope you’ll share our excitement! Sam Kamleh from local architects AWK has worked closely with us to make our dreams for the stables one big step closer to reality. "
Park Lane Stables showed the proposals to residents and visitors at the Teddington Christmas Lights switch on. In their newsletter, Park Lane Stables said of the propsoals;
"It was important to us that the new plans respect the old building (and our neighbours in this residential street), so the exterior will look like a cleaner, sharper version of the original, without being taller or wider. The ‘wall of bricks’ donated by 1200 supporters during our fundraising campaign will be a prominent feature and lasting legacy of the building’s story. Inside we’re retaining the ‘cuddle door’ that came to mean so much to so many during lockdown, and providing more comfortable stables for the horses that will return here."
“Despite the glorious history of our stables in Teddington, the building was not built with horse welfare and humans with additional needs in mind and it is therefore critical we modernise”, explains Natalie O’Rourke.The cottage that was home to Natalie and her family is being replaced with a quiet and light communal area, and we look forward to welcoming many of you here for a cup of tea and a pony cuddle in the future. Our therapy rooms will be here too. You can follow the journey on Park Lane Stables website!
The plans are current at Pre-Application consultation stage with Richmond Planning Department.
