The conversion of a redundant, city-centre office building into 148 apartments. The majority are two bedroom units with duplex penthouses created in the old plant space on the top floor.
Small windows have been replaced with full height glazed screens and high-level precast concrete panels have been concealed behind new aluminium cladding. Large balconies, fabricated off-site and bolted to the original structure complete the makeover of this 1970’s building.
A new rooftop garden has been created on the eighth floor roof along with a communal garden room. The apartments were so highly sought after that all bar a handful were purchased off plan.
The development was shortlisted for RICS Residential Award 2018 and RICS Innovation Award 2018.
