Rob Gregory acted as client, contractor and architect on the refurbishment of Becket Hall in Bristol. The project is part of an ongoing crusade to revive historic buildings by campaigning and writing, as well as by direct action. The hall is set in a medieval courtyard among a group of old buildings, including a church and 15th-century merchants' houses. Long-term development plans are still in negotiation with the owners of the medieval houses and the Churches Conservation Trust, but this preliminary project is intended to kick-start development of the site. Becket Hall is now home to a thriving community of designers.
