Project Description

The proposed scheme pays homage to the forgotten traces of historic urban fabric and architectural remnants that once existed on the site; reinstating old routes through the site and acknowledging the prominence of the long disappeared castle wall, now echoed in the fragmented blocks of the new development.

The scheme has been developed with a strong focus on venerating the hidden history of the site, the creation of natural landscaping to promote biodiversity and ecological awareness and the drive to create rewarding and distinctive architectural experiences.

The architectural form of the development has been derived from the irregularity of the stone coursing evident in the old castle wall; individual blocks have been split irregularly, and scattered along the old traces. Pushing these blocks from their original location to add prominence to the old routes left heavy gouges in the landscape, filled with water these gouges have taken on the form of landscaped ponds, which now reflect the new walls and walkways.​
