Making a living from the land

The Pawson office’s relationship with
the Cistercian community of Sept-Fons
in Burgundy began when the abbey commissioned a new monastery in the Czech Republic, but over the years has
also encompassed work on the French abbey’s historic fabric, as well as the
design of this industrial building,
completed in 2011, housing storage and
full production facilities for the monks’ jam, honey and wheat-based enterprises.
