NEW CATHEDRA & GRADINE

This work concludes the final phase of the Sanctuary re-ordering.

We designed a new Cathedra in Hopton Wood Stone and Frosterley Marble, extended the Clergy benches and organised them in a collegiate layout, enhancing the hierarchy of the Cathedra and stone seating.

The design is completed with a new Gradine, placed behind the Altar and under the Tester, made out of striking large slabs of Frosterley Marble. These new elements direct the eye of the visitors in the correct direction.

The aim was to carry out the works convincingly right, using rich materials that enhance their importance, so that it will not require further re-ordering.
