Shakespeare’s New Place

Useful Studio have provided architectural support to sister company Expedition Engineering for the design development of Shakespeare’s New Place, the last home of the Bard.

A landmark arts and landscape scheme re-imagines the grounds of Shakespeare’s last home in Stratford upon Avon, where he died in 1616. Useful Simple Trustees Chris Wise and Tim O’Brien OBE have conceived the visitor experience as a sequence of allegorical references to Shakespeare’s work and life, arranged around the archaeological remnants of the property.

The landscape works are part of a wider development undertaken by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust to commemorate the 400 years since his passing, with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Gillespies and Ramboll.
