The Benedictine nuns of Stanbrook Abbey needed an update from their ancient home in Worcestershire to support their work and prayer into the future. The brand new Stanbrook Abbey in Yorkshire was named RIBA Yorkshire Building of the Year in recognition of its outstanding design.
The Abbey includes a stunning church and chapel as well as accommodation and parlours. The rich and enveloping acoustics of the church support the nuns’ uplifting chant. The combination of excellent sound insulation with natural ventilation creates a tranquil environment for contemplation as well as keeping confidential discussions private.
Harmonia are proud to have had the rare opportunity to blend the best of modern and traditional design for this amazingly beautiful convent.
