This scheme for student housing forms part of a larger masterplan for the redevelopment of the St George’s Quay area of Lancaster. In conjunction with the City Council, Persimmon Homes and Northpoint Developments Ltd this site is to be developed largely as a private housing area. The part of the development Just-H Architects have been asked to design a scheme for the construction of 200 student apartments above retail leisure provision that incorporates a mix of new build units and the refurbishment of an existing mill building on the site. The existing building is to be sensitively restored with the addition of a modern zinc and glass façade to the old loading assess opening that forms the entrance area to the apartments above the retail space to the lower floors.  The new buildings are designed to complement the existing structures in scale and materiality and open out onto a new landscaped park that incorporates curved stone walls made form the material recovered from the buildings that have been demolished on the site, backing on to an undulating wildflower meadow area.
