Sullivan Design is based in the grounds of Hagley Hall. The family home of the Viscounts Cobham for over 250 years, Hagley Hall is a Palladian mansion built by gentleman architect Sanderson Miller for the 1st Lord Lyttelton from 1754-1760. It is built of pink sandstone, to a rectangular plan with four corner towers, and the house is set on a low rise, giving broad views over rolling countryside. It was built to grace the 350 acres of undulating parkland that he and his father landscaped in the ‘Picturesque’ style from the mid-eighteenth century, and which is peppered with follies and features including the Temple of Theseus designed by James ‘Athenian’ Stuart, which became a model for the Doric order of Greek revival architecture.
