Clifford’s Tower, York

Hugh Broughton Architects 

The efforts to preserve a Norman castle have concluded with the insertion of a timber platform that covers the ruins while tracing a more accessible interior visitor route.

The framework raised over four solid pillars also holds up a series of suspended catwalks, which serve to connect spaces that had long been hidden and allow the use of two spiral staircases previously in disuse.
