A key project goal is the creation of a 3D computer model detailing St Stephen's chapel as it was in early periods of its life. Since the chapel was lost in the fire of 1834, we are undertaking extensive research using:

  • visual representations, such as antiquarian drawings and plans.
  • physical fragments, including the pieces of the internal frieze held by the British Museum.
  • contemporary documents, e.g. building accounts of materials used in the chapel's construction.

The model also helps us to test our theories and see how certain elements might have looked. See the movie below for more information on our work.
