Tesco Superstore, Ludlow


Ludlow is one of the best historic towns in Britain and contains many buildings spanning the last 500 years.

The design incorporates a number of themes. A new perimeter wall marks the boundary of the 'commercial' town centre and protects customers from the relief road traffic. The irregular-width burgage plots along Corve Street are terminated by a new 'burgage' plot containing back-of-house facilities. An internal street provides access to a varied range of support services - a creche, cafe, financial and customer services. Parking is sub-divided, with trailing vines at high level creating a perforated veil to the store. A single profiled roof covers all the facilities below. A clear span is achieved across the store, with the bulk of the volume over the food hall.
