“Built in 1898, the original bakery buildings on this historic site surrounded a courtyard of stables and coach houses. The bakers may be gone, but this 12,000 square foot site is coming alive again. Comprised of three separate buildings (the Bake House, the Lodge House and the Coach Houses), the Bakery Place development is transforming this neglected space into 11 unique residential units, each a benchmark for 21st century living.

Our vision for the scheme offers a contemporary and distinctive living environment that celebrates the history of the original buildings. Our design blends the old and new with carefully selected and positioned materials used to draw attention to the detail and craftsmanship of the original. Exposed brickwork and modular glazed screens add charm and character, whilst double height top-lit spaces and lightweight steel stairs bring contemporary living to this historic space.”
