Peterborough City Council’s new offices, known as Sand Martin House, sit at the heart of a much wider regeneration project called Fletton Quays in the UK. NORR’s design team fully refurbished an historically-listed former Victorian railway building containing two locomotive sheds. We connected them to an adjoining new build with a contemporary glass atrium that seamlessly blends old with new.
To further join past and present, a restored mural was integrated onto the external wall of a new 412-space multi-story car park. Our designers created visually stunning spaces and collaborative working environments while incorporating energy efficient measures. We allotted generous public space to ensure continued use of this important heritage site by the community. Sand Martin House is the first project to be completed as part of the Fletton Quays master plan to transform 20 acres of brownfield sites, derelict land and vacant buildings into a prime riverfront development. NORR continues to work closely with Historic England and the Planning Authority to fulfill this vision.
