This memorial chapel is a key feature within the picturesque 19th century designed landscape of Falkland Estate.

Never completed, the chapel comprises fine ashlar stonewalls capped with concrete. Lacking the protection afforded by the intended roof, the stonework was suffering decay from its exposure to the weather.

Arc designed a scheme of careful masonry repairs to the masonry and ironwork that conserved the structure. Protective soft capping of sedum and grass over clay were applied to the wall heads to protect them from rain and thermal flux. These will slow future decay in a way that mimics the colonisation of such structures by nature, in keeping with the picturesque aesthetic of the chapel.
