Corstorphine + Wright was appointed to explore the redevelopment of the former King’s High School for Girls site in the centre of Warwick.
The proposals include the sensitive refurbishment of a number of listed assets including Landor House (Grade II*) and the cottages on Smith Street (Grade II). Overall, 135 new dwellings are proposed across the site in the form of apartments, duplexes and town houses.
Heritage has formed an integral part of the proposals; in addition to the listed assets, the redevelopment retains and refurbishes the original classrooms and main school hall, the original Borough School and the former Wesleyen Chapel. The proposals also include new build apartments and duplexes above a basement car park, designed to reintegrate the site into the existing street scene and taking the opportunity to install a long-lasting place of character that contributes to the rich and mixed vernacular of Warwick.
