Green light for Cartwright Pickard Leeds scheme

  • Comment

A Cartwright Pickard Architects-designed office block has been granted planning permission by Leeds City Council

The eight-storey, 75,000ft2 building in Whitehall Road will sit next to Allies and Morrison’s No 1 Whitehall building, and the city’s Wellington Place scheme.

It will be clad in dark anodised aluminium, with elevations enlivened by vertical brises solieil with a subtly varying anodized finish.

Cartwright Pickard said that the structure had been created ‘adopting Louis Kahn’s concept of “served” and “servant” spaces’, with cores having distinct forms clearly delineated from the office floor space, boosting flexibility and maximising lettable space.

Designed for Town Centre Securities, the building is targeting a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating.

Cartwright Pickard said that a wind assessment for the structure had been conducted by the Building Research Establishment to ensure that the site was safe for pedestrians following notorious safety issues with the nearby Bridgewater Place development.
