A grand Suffolk country hall was recognised in a national awards ceremony which celebrates exemplary conservation and restoration projects.

Euston Hall, near Thetford, was jointly commended in the restoration of a Georgian interior category at the Georgian Group Architectural Awards.

The awards, sponsored by Savills and now in their 15th year, reward those who have shown the vision and commitment to restore Georgian buildings and designed landscapes.

In addition, the awards also commend new buildings in the classical tradition.

Architects Francis Johnston and Partners were behind the interior restoration at Euston Hall.

Crispin Holborow, country director of Savills private office and member of the judging panel, said: “Some wonderful entries this year. In particular the tenacity and attention to detail of some owners in restoring their houses and landscapes is awe inspiring.

“The new build category exemplifies the imaginative and decorative skills still evident among the architectural and artisan community.”
