New build with Facade Retention | Chester

Located near Chester City Centre, this project involved NWD Architects designing a replacement building behind the front wall of the existing building, employing the method of façade retention to allow a new-build structure to tie-in behind it. The benefit of this approach was the retention of a street scene that is well known and liked locally, whilst making use of a redundant site. With the client, we designed a scheme to provide 6,000ft² of retail space at street level, with two floors of apartments above.
