The scheme I have designed in Shrewsbury is deeply rooted in its context; topography, geology, climate, cultural and historical factors have all engaged the design process throughout the year informing big and small decisions in how the building responds to its site. References to the Tudor typology have also been threaded throughout the project.

The proposal consists of a series of courtyards that connects the patchwork of historically significant buildings with The Quarry park whilst providing a new creative, cultural hub for the community. A Library, Council Offices, Cafe, Workshop’s and Exhibition Centre are provided for, each in their own unique space forming a new public node on the fringe of the town.
