Siliver Hill Antiques Market gets underway

Monday, August 6th, 2018

We are delighted that civic chiefs have confirmed Winchester’s historic Antique Market will now become a hub for theatre, music and the arts, in the first redevelopment under the Silver Hill 2 scheme. Having been part of the team developing the wider masterplan we are pleased to have also been part of the first steps towards seeing the area rejuvenated.

Officially known as the Central Winchester Regeneration Project (CWR), the scheme aims to revamp the area surrounding the building, with the improvement of the Antique Market being one of Winchester City Council’s short-term goals.

The newly-formed ‘Nutshell Arts’ Community Interest Company plans to re-brand the venue as ‘The Nutshell’ and offer it as an accessible place for creatives to use for rehearsals, workshops, exhibitions and small-scale productions; alongside resident companies the Discarded Nut Theatre Company and ENCORE Youth Theatre. Richard Harrison of Snug Architects worked with them to develop design ideas and ensure the space within the venue can be fully accessible.

Perseverance pays

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

We won planning permission today for an exciting infill development in Portsmouth. It has been a long game…only took 4 years to finally get approval at committee! Perseverance clearly pays.

It is a great scheme and we are pleased to see that the negotiation with the LPA was worthwhile. Below are images of how the scheme developed through the negotiation.
