We carried out a careful historical analysis of the existing building which shaped our proposals to respect, reveal and celebrate the  character of the building. Originally built in 1850's as a Town Hall, it was converted into a Petty Sessions Court and Children's Court and remodelled in the 1930’s.

A mix of one and two beds provide a variety of apartment sizes and layouts, some featuring double height spaces, roof terraces and two benefit from their own front door.

Extensions at roof level echo the form of the main roof overlooking the square and is finished with a green standing seam zinc roof, providing a crisp, contemporary finish., while feature glass and oak stairs offer further modern architectural detailing.
