Bennetts Associates is designer for this square building. A new square forms the heart of Bennett Associates’ New Street Square development, with pedestrian routes radiating from each of its four corners. Cafés and shops adjacent to entrances animate the street scene. Although the tallest element in the is 18 storeys, varying building heights ensure that sunlight penetrates the square.
The palette of stone, glass and steel is softened by the of an attractive growing green wall, providing interest and character to the scheme. This urban regeneration project brings a new vitality to this area, as well as providing a new publicspace which has already had considerable local economic impact.
