Architects are often revered as jack of all trades, adapting to changes in our surroundings, encompassing both the physical and intangible aspects, from the immediate building site to the memories and history of a place. As we progress technologically, I aspire to incorporate elements of the past and evoke memories through my design.

The project is situated in the heart of Preston's city center, drawing inspiration from its rich textile and cotton industry heritage. In addition to celebrating the cultural significance of this heritage, the design also addresses a contemporary social issue, bridging the gap between the old and the new while offering an architectural solution to a problem.

Preston's textile and cotton industry played a pivotal role in shaping the city's identity and economy. By embracing this historical context, the design aims to pay homage to the city's industrial heritage through architectural elements and material choices. The use of textures and patterns reminiscent of textile weaves can be seen in the façade, evoking a sense of nostalgia while simultaneously adding visual interest.
