The Red Tower, Foss Islands Road

Client/Developer: Red Tower York CIC
Architect/Designer: Holland Brown Architects
Builder: Croft Farm Construction

A Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building with parts dating back to c.1490, the Red Tower was part of the City of York’s wall defences. Until recently used as an occasional store by the city council, the building has been refurbished and fitted out by a community group to include a low-key refreshment facility on the ground floor and a flexible function room on the first floor. The design had to cope with the likelihood of regular flooding and uses robust materials and elements which can be wheeled out in the event of a flood.
