Title: MarketPlace & City Dwelling
Client: University of Portsmouth
Sept/2008 - July/2009
We were required to design a new public space or spaces in the city of Southampton together with a new market hall, space or street together with residential accommodation and retail provision.
Sandwiched between Western Esplanade & Portland Terrace. The site is located within the boundary of the historic ‘Old Town’ area of Southampton, close to the location of the former castle. It consists of a large urban space, the edges of which are only partially framed by buildings.
The potential of the Site has not been realised as an important contribution to the urban fabric of Southampton. The site marks a transition in scale and topography in the existing city. To the north, the large-scale retail units of ‘ West Qual’ prevail.
