First images of contest-winning Malmo Quay scheme revealed

  • Comment

The first images of Paris-based AWP’s scheme for Igloo’s mixed-use regeneration of Malmo Quay in Newcastle have been revealed

The practice was chosen to take forward the scheme at the entrance to Newcastle’s cultural and creative quarter back in July.  It is concentrating on the area’s new cycle hub which is accessible from the waterfront.

Marc Armengaud, partner at AWP said: ‘Our design for the Malmo Quay Cycle Hub was inspired by the ascent to Mount Ventoux, one of the most impressive stages of the Tour de France. We have designed a reflective, polished steel ramp and an observatory platform, which will showcase the surrounding landscape and create framed views of the Tyne. The proposal includes a series of small architectures, sheltered structures from where the docks can be enjoyed as well as the regeneration of the public realm.’

Alongside the cycle hub the project also includes 60 apartments at the gateway to Ouseburn.

The practice is working with London-based Mikhail Riches and Featherstone Young, who are each concentrating on different aspects of the development.

The three practices were picked from a shortlist of nine outfits to work on the Urbed-masterplanned site.

The project is expected to start on site next year.
