Plan Expo Opus Building Award Winner 2001 Conservation and Restoration
This 3-storey 19th Century warehouse on Barrow Street has been refurbished and converted to office accomodation. An emphasis was placed on maintaining as much of the original building fabric as possible. New interventions were kept to a minium and designed to complement the exisitng. Masonry walls, steel structure and timber floors have been restored. Steel windows have been repaired where possible and new windows designed to match. The roof has been reslated and a 25m long roof-light introduced. Ancillary accomodation and services are confined within a simple core rising at one end of the plan, leaving unobstructed areas for offices.
