North Street Offices

Client: Sutton Harbour Company for the DWP

Completion: 2006

This scheme was part of a brave initiative to bring mixed-use urban regeneration to a run down site on the primary route into Plymouth. The triangular site known as Moon Street previously accommodated poor quality residential apartments.

A comprehensive masterplan was developed to emphasise the importance of the gateway location and order the uses on the site to respond to its challenging geometry. The comprehensive scheme included new residential apartments, ground floor active uses to enliven the street scene, a central courtyard, and this office, which has become a new home to the Department of Works and Pensions.
