columned wondrousness

October 23, 2017

Please take a few moments today to wander through Jasper Conran’s exquisite Wiltshire home. “This house is built as a huge piece of theatre,” says the designer of the Palladian style home. Designed by James Paine in the 1930s, the house features a dramatic sweeping rotunda staircase and full-sized pipe organ made of wood, ivory and gold. “The acoustics in the rotunda are absolutely extraordinary. If you stand in the middle of the ground floor and sing, it has the most remarkable effect. The sound goes right thorough you.”
