Penny's Place

As part of an invited competition to provide residential accommodation on this prominent Southern Parkland site, JPE proposed a design response that retained and expressed the history of the existing red brick knitting mill. With reference to the building's history, the proposed scheme stitches together a range of uses and apartment types, incorporating offices, townhouses and apartments, with a striking frontage to Greenhill Road, and a terracing garden to the south. The saw-tooth volumes of the original building have been utilised as the main entry lobbies to the apartments and office tenancies.
