Its always nice to see a project you've worked on win an accolade and the Leicester Print Works has done just that. Although only a small project in terms of ground area and budget the end result is a design that has rightfully been recognised as successful amongst its peers. Its fantastic to see an old derelict building being brought back into use in such an innovative way to benefit the community.
The Leicester Print Workshop is a transformation of a 1970s former glass warehouse to create new printmaking studios, library, gallery and education spaces in the city’s Cultural Quarter. The design is a fantastic example of how a 1970s warehouse building can be re-envisioned to create an elegant maker space. The new openings in the existing brick elevations frame the activities within, while reuse of existing brickwork allows subtle remodelling of existing openings.
