While the river location directed the development of the surroundings into a thriving dock, wharf area and fruit market, the Palace informed the plan of the emerging townscape. Our new scheme engages directly with the historic fabric of the townscape enriching this historic relationship.
The development aims to reinforce the increasing vitality of the area by accommodating restaurants and retail areas at ground level with residential apartments above.
"It was a very complex scheme involving a restrictive planning environment, substantial archaeology beneath the site, and Winchester Palace, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, adjoining the building. We enjoyed working with Cullinans and found all staff to be very professional and knowledgeable in all aspects, with particular attention to architectural detailing as well as very good management skills in relation to the whole design team and main contractor."
