Site history

Understanding the history of the site and reinstating what previously existed in a contemporary way, has been a key driver for the concept of the proposal.

As the adjacent plan indicates, historically the uniform facade bay of Hurdwick Place terraces continued around the corner and along Harrington Square, once adjoining to the existing row of listed terrace houses to the end of Harrington Square.

This uniformity of facade was destroyed following WW2 bomb damage. The site has stood empty since with Hurdwick House constructed following the war adjacent to the site.
The scheme looks to reinstate the historic building use, mass and facade rhythm back onto the site
