UoE – Routemaster and containers
- Project Type: Commercial
- Client: University of Essex
- Status: Completed
- Location: Essex
This creative extension of a detached front-gabled Victorian house is subtly nestled into the street scene.
The project involved a complete refurbishment of the existing house and a large two-storey extension to double the original footprint, replacing a dilapidated garage. The extension has been designed to reflect elements of the existing house in a contemporary composition with brick and zinc detailing and aluminium framed glazing.
Both projects are situated within the landscaped wivenhoe park and are located to provide destination points within the park to attract students and staff eastwards to the new ‘sixth square’ with the new student centre and library.
