Dartington Carillon Project

Architecture

Our approach for the Dartington carillon has been very different to traditional carillons – we want to create a building that is a superb instrument as well as a showcase for bells that are significant works of art

For this reason we have created a carillon where the bells themselves are the major visual feature. Visitors will be able to walk around the bells and play them with leather mallets.

Visitors will have access to the permanent on-site foundry where the bells for the carillon will be cast.

The carillon building has an integral amphitheatre and art gallery.

The drawings below give some idea of what the Dartington carillon will look like.
