Our design for the new convent for the Rosminian Sisters in Loughborough sensitively integrates the daily and future needs of the religious community with the historic context of the site and includes a new chapel and accommodation.

The existing convent and chapel were located in a Grade II listed building of the mid-19th century that was unsuitable for adaptation. The new convent provides 23 bedrooms, six of which are ensuite care bedrooms.

The new and old chapels are linked by the courtyard garden, which provides the main focus from the circulation routes through the convent and frames the old chapel within the historic gardens.
