Middleton Restaurant, Middleton Lodge, North Yorkshire

This new build restaurant in a registered parkland setting will accompany self-catering holiday accommodation, proposed for the Middleton Lodge Estate, also designed by Studioshaw. 

The building is set into the sloping landscape, and the diner’s arrival is controlled to initially obscure, then reveal long distance views across the North Yorkshire Moors. The form and materiality of the space is inspired by the rich and varied collection of Georgian buildings on the estate, many with arched forms. 

James Allison, Client, Middleton Lodge; “We’ve loved working with studioshaw, they really got the concept we were trying to deliver and ran with it. They took our brief further than we originally thought possible with some clever design and original thinking. We’re really looking forward to the next stage of the project to turn the ideas into a reality.”
