Warehouse Conversion

A conceptual scheme for the conversion of a low rent, under-utilised quayside historic warehouse building in the Truro Conservation area. Lilly Lewarne were commissioned to develop proposals for conversion to a single warehouse residential property, having developed a number of successful residential and commercial schemes for this client in Truro’s riverside quarter. The proposals consider contemporary but sensitive redevelopment of the historic shell with minimal but ‘key note’ contemporary intervention to the main external fabric, while largely re-writing the script internally to create an exciting and dynamic series of spaces around a central external court.
