Lincoln's Cultural Quarter redevelopment by Jonathan Hendry Architects

  • Comment

FIRST LOOK: This £2.45 million project in Lincoln will create 18 apartments, two town houses, a retail unit and a courtyard building by partially demolishing and restoring several listed buildings

The site is in Lincoln’s Cultural Quarter; the most important buildings are on the western end of the site and are Grade II listed.

The architects said: ‘The urban grain that makes up this part of Lincoln runs predominantly east to west following the natural slope of the land. The adhock nature in which buildings have been extended following the slope of the land has created a diverse roofscape.

‘The buildings at the western end of the site face onto the base of Steep Hill connecting the High Street with the Cathedral Quarter. Historically this range of buildings is the most important. This is represented by their Grade II listing.

‘The historical streetscape offers a series of interconnected routes and buildings that define the streets edges and public spaces. This project increases the density of buildings in order to achieve this goal and also strengthen the contrast between green landscaped areas such as Temple gardens and built-up urban areas.’

‘The insertion of the Grantham Street Building creates a strong well defined edge reinstating the historic street pattern and completing the urban block.’
