Project Description

A residential development of 47 apartments above 2 large new retail units

Solution

Located in the heart of the world’s first garden city, the site is part of the existing Garden Square Shopping Centre which is to remain open during construction. A sensitive approach to design taking into consideration the surrounding buildings and local vernacular was undertaken through close relationships with the Letchworth Heritage Foundation and the local authority. A new lightweight 3rd floor to the existing office building has been added to enable this building to be converted to brand new, residential accommodation.

Status

Planning permission was recently granted and construction is due to start on site in late 2014.
