photo of the week: renovations at Southover Grange, Lewes

Posted by carlotta on Friday November 18th, 2016 at 9:01am

I came across this stairwell at the very end of my most recent shoot of the renovations at Southover Grange in Lewes. I am documenting the building works of this Tudor manor for the owners, East Sussex County Council, so they can keep local residents up-to-date with the progress. As always with this type of job, I never know what I will find to photograph when I go on site. Sometimes it will be dramatic and obvious and sometimes it will be a subtle detail. I was pleased when I found this one. I liked the split between the beautifully lit clean white staircase on the right to the bare cracked brick wall on the left, with the slightly incongruous blank window of blue and green panes. Even the ceilings are contrasting: white and ascending towards the light to dark splintered wooden lathes supported by struts. Next time I visit, this split will be unified. It will all be beautifully smoothed over and finished with everything in its place. More photographs from this shoot can be found here.
