J E STACEY & Co. New projects
Headland Hotel - Aquacentre
This phase of the works comprises the construction of a new aqua centre and a restaurant at The Headland Hotel, Newquay, Cornwall. The building is to be steel framed, walls will be constructed in masonry with a natural stone finish and the roof will be a planted green roof. Specialist pool design is by Aquaplatinum Projects. The work required includes external finishing and landscaping works, involving the forming of an external terrace with 2 outdoor pools enclosed by a stone clad colonnade, and reconstruction of the tennis court enclosed by a Cornish stone hedge to the eastern site boundary.
Winsford Hospital - Landmark Trust
We are very excited to be starting work at the Winsford Hospital, a Grade II* listed building built in 1899-1900, in Halwill Junction later this year. It was originally designed by C F A Voysey and funded by Mrs Maria Medley to commemorate her husband. It was used as a convalescent home during World War I and passed into the NHS between 1948-1999 when it was closed by the East Devon Health Authority. Since 1999 the building has been used for a variety of community uses related to health care.
Today, the building survives very largely unaltered in its late Victorian form, set in its original landscape. It incorporates all the usual key elements of Voysey's works, an aestheitc of formal simplicity, truth to materials and sparing but delightful detail. The project will involve restoring and renovating the Grade II listed cottage hospital alongside the Landmark Trust, a registered charity set up in 1965 to rescue small buildings of historic importance and architectural merit. The main challenge for this project is to create a Landmark that retains all that is important and original about this building. The majority of the buildings they restore are then available to visitors for holidays. The income from this then pays for future maintenance and assures the buildings’ future. The intention at Winsford Hospital would be to create a Landmark for six people.

An impressive new, modern family home built with natural, eco-friendly low-energy materials. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the new dwelling sits comfortably on an existing site blending into the surrounding landscape. Unusually the new house is being constructed with hemp blocks, and includes a ground source heat pump and PV solar panels to make it as energy efficient as possible. It enjoys far reaching views of the Cornish coast from two different aspects.
