The imaginative re-use of historic buildings is at the core of our approach to sustainability. Our aim was to create high quality boutique flats with a strong industrial style. The scheme maximised the development potential of the site, whilst maintaining the character of the existing buildings.
As an example we encouraged our client to retain the landmark chimney tower and successfully wove it into the design. It now provides a key feature for the development, with the landings created proving a popular meeting place for students.
