The Brunswick Centre is a pioneering medium-rise, high-density, inner-city neighbourhood, designed by Patrick Hodgkinson (with the help of a young David Levitt and David Bernstein). However, by the turn of the century it was severely run-down. We were invited to restore, repair and improve the Centre to help it become a thriving neighbourhood once again.
Our approach has been to complete and restore the original architectural vision for the Centre wherever possible, whilst making contemporary interventions. The central shopping street has been upgraded with a new anchor supermarket, enlarged retail units and extended shop fronts to provide more attractive spaces for retailers. The width of the vast concourse has been reduced by adding glass walkways, canopies and central seating, creating a more active and intimate streetscape.
