Mixed Use Development
LLA were first commissioned in 2002 by repeat clients Arrowcity to consider mixed use proposals for this redundant industrial site, which is an important remnant of central Cornwall’s socio-economic heritage – the rockdrills manufactured on this site were exported all over the world, as indeed were Cornish miners themselves. This manufacturing formed an important strand of the Holman’s and thereby Camborne’s business, and included the late Victorian Camborne Public Rooms building – for a time the Holman’s Apprentices school. The site also included a much earlier Georgian forge building.. The development was completed in phases – the main site development in 2012 and conversion of the Public Rooms building in 2013 and formally opened by George Eustace MP. The project has received a number of awards and commendations since its opening, and was identified by Sir John Banham chair of the Future Homes Commission as …
…the sort of project that should be built in every town in Cornwall and nationally too.
