Corstorphine + Wright are delighted to announce our entry, Plummer House has been shortlisted in the Listed Building Award (over 5 million) category at the AJ Retrofit Awards 2017.
Plummer House in Newcastle involved the complete internal and external transformation of an unused Grade II listed building into a high- quality, 250 bed space, student accommodation development.
Our scheme was designed to meet the needs of today’s students and enhance the student’s higher education experience as well as benefiting the wider community and local businesses.
At the heart of the scheme was the sensitive refurbishment of the Grade II listed Plummer House and Ball Room. We also paid particular attention to an adjacent SAM (Scheduled Ancient Monument) in the reconfiguration of the site.
Now complete, Plummer House offers elegant and innovative design-led student apartments, providing relaxing and spacious student living accommodation. With a mix of units comprising of bed-deck mezzanine apartments within the listed Plummer House, along with new-build studios and cluster apartments the combination caters for all requirements and financial demographics.
