Power Upgrade!

Planning permission has now been granted for a group of apartments designed by Brunskill Architects on a tight city centre corner site. This is a sensitive addition to, and refurbishment of, a disused electricity substation. The original building is locally listed and sits within a Conservation area. The design is arranged to sit well within the streetscape and to maximise space and light to the internal areas. It was important not to detract from the charachter of the original building. Discussions with the local authority enabled successful resolution of the plans. The site is triangular and mostly surrounded by a high brick wall, which led to the design incorporating different types of roof lights to allow light to reach the occupants. Original brick and steel features of the original building will be kept and refurbished.
