Five buildings and a car park were refurbished along with a new public courtyard and connecting pedestrian routes to repair the urban fabric and re-establish the character of the area with a diverse mix of uses. The character of the original buildings is retained in certain elements including decorative stonework, cast- and wrought-iron structural columns and beams, Victorian junction boxes and exposed layers of brick and render. Around the courtyard, retail units beneath a new lighting scheme activate the public realm. Raised planters double as seating and the provision of power allows for cultural events.
