Tesco, Ludlow, Shropshire

Supermarkets within towns often have to deal with complex planning, political and logistical issues, which were significantly more complex for a historical town such as Ludlow. The architectural concept provided a sensitive solution while providing Tesco with a functional store, which can be repeated on other sites. The large rectangular shed is made distinctive by introducing a 40m span roof form, the double 'S'curve could not be made with 'off-the-shelf ' Ibeams for a large clear span. The solution adopted was to cut a 914 I-beam to create T-sections which were then curved and rewelded. The resulting form fits in to replace the old market place.

ARCHITECT: MacCormac Jamieson Prichard
