Corstorphine + Wright designed this scheme for Fusion Residential who were proposing to provide student accommodation in the heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne within a Grade II listed building.
The scheme provides over 250 bed spaces and includes the sensitive refurbishment of the Grade II listed Plummer House and Ball Room. Particular attention has been paid to an adjacent SAM (Scheduled Ancient Monument) in the reconfiguration of the site.
The scheme consists of bed-deck mezzanine apartments within the listed Plummer House, along with new-build studios and cluster apartments. The scheme also includes refurbishment of the ground floor retail space of Plummer Tower and the introduction of courtyard space responding to the context of the SAM.
