Historic Buildings: Highly Commended and The People's Award Nominated by: Friends of Turner's House Region: Greater London Architect: Butler Hegarty Architects Description: Sandycombe Lodge is a small Grade II* Listed, early 19th century villa, the largest surviving architectural work of the eminent landscape painter J.M.W Turner. Designed by Turner as a rural retreat near the Thames in Twickenham, the conservation of this architectural treasure has been a tireless labour of love, and a source of enormous local pride. Initiated by the local community, seven year’s of hard work which included raising £2.4m and use of ‘creative demolition’ has rescued a former Building at Risk, returning it to Turner’s original vision of a small rustic building in a picturesque landscape.
