Sunderland Masterplan win alongside big name architects

The team we were part of has been chosen for a series of sites around Sunderland including the large Vaux Brewery site. The £800 million regeneration project is our largest win to date and an experience we are keen to follow on from.

Malmo Quay Masterplan

Malmo Quay Masterplan
Location : Ouseburn, Newcastle
Sectors: Masterplan, Residential, Leisure

We were invited by urban developers Igloo to submit a design proposal for the Malmo Quay where the Ouseburn meets Newcastle Quayside as part of a design competition.

Working with the Urbed masterplan strategy our proposal described the external community space as the generator of the resulting plots which housed the cycle hub, restaurant and live/work units. The view from the Freetrade Pub was a key design driver in the massing with urban space created on the roof of the restaurant to keep the view from becoming cluttered.

The cycle hub building has a dynamic but light structural form to reflect the function it houses and also giving a landmark to this amazing site on the Tyne River.
