Piccadilly Lofts

Architect/ Designer: COG Architecture
Client/Developer: Northminster
Builder: Aspect Building Solutions
Staircase Manufacturer: Bics

A very inventive reworking of a near derelict 1930’s car showroom on an awkward triangular site between the river and Terry Avenue.  It provides seven one- and two-bed apartments over two stories of commercial space.   The apartments are tightly planned (as befits this centre-city site) and ingeniously designed with bedrooms and internal balconies on mezzanine levels carved out of the roof volumes.  The chief delight of the scheme is the main stair with its beautifully crafted, free-form handrail.
