Fox Hayes & City Wall
Architectural Design & Delivery
Bespoke Office, 80 One & Two Bed Apartments, Modern Courtyard, Car parking
The North Street development forms a significant residential led mixed-use scheme on the fringe of Leeds City Centre. The brief called for an innovative design and site response coupled with satisfaction of a traditional solicitor’s practice and aesthetic aspirations.
The white Spanish Dolomite façade forms a robust response to the environment and brief with pre-cast foil feature light boxes on one corner. The bespoke office building faces North Street, with modern facilities and top conference floor spread over five floors. By contrast the seven storey residential development softens the office side; it consists of 80 one and two bedroom apartments overlooking a modern courtyard at the hub of the development. The whole scheme sits over a naturally ventilated car park for 80 vehicles.
