Design proposals for an international design competition.

Initial studies indicated the need for a highly efficient organisational system.

Our aim was the provision of a simple and elegant plan as the generator of a composed elevation.

In section, the apartments are placed above a two-storey base formed by the office accommodation, which extends for the full width of the site with a frontage on Strand Street. This linear arrangement, split by an atrium, aims to reconcile the need for an imposing frontage to the harbour with the more modest scale of the urban fabric to the east.

Location: Whitehaven
