Commercial and residential development set in public spaces that recall the area’s industrial heritage
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris for Adena Property Investments
Contract value: £25m
Cost per m2: £2,153
This latest addition to the Notting Dale masterplan along the edge of the West Cross route is a mix of commercial and residential development set in public spaces that recall the area’s industrial heritage and connect it to the broader city. The George Building (commercial offices) is conceived as two dark brick wings mediating between larger scale office developments and the finer grain of residential terraces. In contrast, the Frestonia Apartments building is defined as a light brickwork block, with generous terraces and gardens carved from the volume. Here the apartments are arranged around split-levels to create light-filled, characterful double height living spaces.
