The project brief was to develop a design for a prestigious city centre development, providing 48 luxury apartments in a mixture of one-bed studio apartments and two-bed triplex units to a high standard of specification, with 2 levels of underground basement parking.
The scheme involves the retention of the existing listed façade to the original Old Nottingham Eye Infirmary. The new build portion of the building includes brick clad facades with a lightweight glazed penthouse storey at its upper most point. The penthouse structure contrasts both in its construction and aesthetics to provide a contrast to the GradeII Listed existing facade.
The project demonstrates our ability to work with existing buildings, including complex façade retention schemes on tight city centre sites which in this case fall within the historic Nottingham Conservation Area.
