SENSITIVE SCHEME FOR SALISBURY
Stanton Williams has been given the green light for this competition-winning scheme for new offices for Salisbury District Council on the edge of the Wiltshire city's medieval centre.
The practice was chosen to carry out the project on the historically sensitive Bourne Hill site back in February 2004, after seeing off more than 70 other practices. As well as revamping an existing 18th-century Grade II-listed building, owned by the council, the scheme includes the addition of a new 4,000m 2 administrative block. Linked to the original building by two 'delicate' glazed structures, these offices will boast a colonnade of 12m-high vertical, Portland Roach stone fins.
Building work is due to start next year.
