The corner of Gregory Street and Abbey Bridge is arguably one of the most prominent gateway sites into the centre of Nottingham. It is characterised by relatively low-lying buildings and a predominance of tarmac, the public realm not helped by the tram crossing with its cabling and infrastructure. This scheme aims to address the issue; 23 high quality 2-bed apartments are created in a single block. Strong in form with a bold use of colour, it announces its presence to the street, whilst still remaining respectful to adjoining buildings. Two storeys step up to four on the corner. The external envelope curves around the site, enveloping a private central courtyard garden.
