We’re proud to announce that The Point is one of the winners of the 2018 Civic Trust Awards.

The project houses two multi-purpose halls, music room and recording studio, café and a series of activity pods and break-out spaces. The roof, with its dark folded ‘cloak’ appearance, gives the building a contemporary edge whilst internally a series of uplifting spaces create an environment the youngsters want to use every day.

Newbury ‘later living’ development

Plans submitted

5 December 2017

We’ve submitted plans for a new mixed-use development at the heart of Newbury. Developed as a benchmark scheme for Eden Retirement Living, the proposals for 11-15 Bartholomew Street include 61 apartments for independent ‘later living’ together with communal facilities, concierge services, guest accommodation, retail units and car parking.

The 5,693m² building is designed as a series of 3 and 4-storey blocks arranged in a C shape and centred around a split level landscaped courtyard. Overlooking the main garden is the residents’ lounge, arts and crafts studio, and fitness suite. On the upper courtyard level, raised planters are used to define communal garden areas and private patio spaces.

A simple material palette of red brick and bronze is enriched by a variety of textures and details including brick frames, smooth light bronze panels and recessed balconies. Inspiration has been drawn from the neighbouring 19th Century Georgian buildings and courtyard spaces to design a contemporary scheme that responds sensitively to the local context and provides an attractive backdrop for the Grade I listed St Nicholas Church.
