Builder: Simpson (York) Ltd
Architect: CSP Architects

Moxy York is a commercial scheme responding to an eclectic townscape. The project looks to reconcile significant scale transitions between the surrounding buildings. It removes a void in the urban grain to reinstate a formal streetscape, define the public domain and reinvigorate its sense of place. 

The building envelope predominantly uses textured grey-buff bricks under light grey standing seam metal roofs. The project uses prefabricated cross-laminated timber modules to minimise embodied carbon and maximise efficiencies from off-site construction.

The design respects the adjacent heritage and landmark buildings, with a distinctive architectural composition that maintains the visual clarity of each building.
