Liverpool-based practice Union North has submitted this £30 million residential project for developer Urban Splash for planning in Leeds. The project, which involves the refurbishment of two 1960s housing blocks that have stood empty for four years, will create 373 apartments and a new landscape scheme. The architect said it aimed to depart from the 'cellular and repetitive' arrangement of the original apartments. It claimed that its design works on a 'bigger, bolder' scale, where the 'sheer size of the buildings' becomes the central asset of the site. The project has involved a collaboration with ASL Landscape to create the new landscape, which unusually includes allotments.

The practice won an invited competition for the project in 2004 and it expects to start on site later this year.
