Corstorphine + Wright are delighted to announce that Plummer House has been shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Design Awards 2017.
This Grade II listed building in the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne was designed for Fusion Residential who wanted to internally and externally transform the unused space into high quality 250 bed space student accommodation
As well as sensitively refurbishing the Grade II listed Plummer House and Ball Room, we paid attention to an adjacent SAM (Scheduled Ancient Monument) in the reconfiguration of the site.
The result is elegant and innovative design led apartments comprising a mix of new build studios, bed deck apartments, and cluster apartments that cater for all requirements.
As standard, all the units include fully fitted contemporary kitchens, individual study space, storage space and double beds. High-speed broadband and Wi-Fi with unlimited data is also fitted and available throughout as standard.
The design ensures the building relates harmoniously to its streetscape whilst providing an attractive living and learning environment. For the wider community, it incorporates a retail offer, generates an active and engaging frontage and stimulates links between the city centre and Carliol Square.
