Located on the site of Bhaktivedanta Manor, a 77 acre estate in Aldenham, Hertfordshire owned and operated by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). A place of Vaishnava-Hindu worship located in the ground of the previously owned George Harrison (The Beatles) listed manor house with sensitive Green Belt planning issues.

The proposals respond to the context of the site by providing low lying buildings which articulate against the topography of the site and offset themselves from the listed historic manor. The buildings respond to their usage and the colourful rhythmic nature of the religious identity of this organisation.
