The rear view of Gregynog Hall
Gregynog is the University of Wales residential conference centre. Set in 750 acres of grounds
The house and grounds were donated to the University in 1960 by the late Ms Margaret Davies. In the 1920s, she and her sister Gwendoline established The Gregynog Press, an internationally known fine arts press which still publishes today as Gwasg Gregynog
Gregynog appears to be a tall timber Jacobean structure, but a closer look reveals the building's rectilinear shape and concrete casing. The relief 'black and white' rendering is in imitation of local timber-framed Border houses. It is unclear who was responsible for the design of the present building, but it is thought that Henry Hanbury Tracey - grandson to Charles - may have influenced the choice of concrete as a building material, as he was a keen enthusiast for the then 'new' substance.
