Northgate St, Gloucester
Potter & Holmes were commissioned to take on this complex project involving the remodelling of the upper floors of a corner site in the centre of Gloucester and the addition of a further floor.
The proximity to the cathedral limited the extent of the upper floor and an entire section of the existing building had to be removed to create a shared courtyard to give light and air to the flats in the centre of the plan.
22 flats have been created, the majority are studios for young single people. Every flat is provided with a bicycle, stored in the communal parts at ground level.
Contract value: £1.45m
