The brief was to take this commercial unit in Stoke city centre and convert it into residential apartments.
The former arts and crafts centre forms 10 apartments mixed 1 and 2 bedrooms. The additional floor added a further 2 3 bedroom apartments with a communal roof terrace for the residents to use.
The cladding to the front of the building rotates to provide shading and security to the ground and first floor apartments. The pattern etched into the cladding contains pottery pattens to reflects the history of pottery of stoke.
