This scheme involved the extensive refurbishment and reuse of a locally listed factory building, combined with a new extension with strong industrial aesthetic in counterpoint, to provide 34 residential flats for returning students and key-workers.
Willmore Iles are delighted to announce that The Shoe and Boot Factory in Leicester has received a Civic Society Award for architectural contributions to the historic built environment of the City of Leicester. The refurbished and new build structures on site have proven very popular for students at both Leicester’s universities, providing a unique living environment and aesthetic.
Members from the Willmore Iles team headed up to Leicester last week to attend the ceremony along with staff from Campbell Property, the project clients.
Amidst the champagne and mojitos, an award was accepted by a very chuffed Julian and Victoria. Our congratulations to the whole team.
