Welsh Writers’ Centre seeks conservation architect

Cricieth in Gwynedd
  • Comment

Literature Wales is recruiting a conservation architect for its Grade II* listed Ty Newydd Writers’ Centre

The appointed expert will receive around £4,250 to draw up a five year Conservation Plan for the historic building – also known as the National Centre for Writing in Wales.

According to the contract notice, the report ‘must assess the current and predicted conservation needs and attempt to address them with a view towards maintaining or increasing the significance of this heritage asset.

‘The plan should establish an agreed approach for future repairs and development and include a specification and schedule of work.’

An ‘on-call’ consultation service for the works and additional development planning will also be required.

Rural Office Architecture won a contest for a new 7.5m² writer’s shed on the site near Cricieth, in Gwynedd last year.

Chosen from 23 entries to the Royal Society of Architects in Wales-organised competition, the winning scheme has yet to be constructed but could be integrated into later redevelopment plans.

Located in the garden of the building, the shed is expected to be used by poets and players, artists, storytellers and explorers.
