Royal Porcelain Works is the culmination of six years’ effort to reinvigorate the derelict Royal Worcester factory site into seven townhouses, three apartments and an arts and exhibition venue including a café and workspaces. Works included restoration of the grade II listed porcelain display hall and rebuilding the counting house. A foyer constructed with in situ concrete and glulam beams creates a separation between old and new. Pedestrianised public space unites the Museum of Royal Worcester with this historical part of the city.
