After months of pre-application discussions with Newcastle City Council, our proposals for the conversion of the former Eaga office HQ in Jesmond into 80 apartments was granted detailed planning consent by the planning Committee with a unanimous decision in favour of this major regeneration project. Demolition and enabling works have started with immediate effect and the construction works will be in full swing by early summer (assuming that winter doesn’t just continue all the way through spring, summer and autumn).
Our plans for the redevelopment of the former Rutson Hospital site in Northallerton took a major step forward this month with the signing of a pre-let to a major food and fashion retailer. The proposals include the careful conversion of a series of listed buildings to bar and restaurant uses and the development of a new 16,000sqft retail store. The scheme takes its inspiration from the form, detail and materials of the surrounding local architecture but combines them to create a contemporary scheme that is of its time and... Read The Rest →

+3 Architecture have just submitted a planning application to convert an existing office building into residential apartments in Newcastle City Centre. Eaga House was extensively refurbished and extended in the late 1990’s to create a 5 storey, 70,000sqft office building but the departure of the tenant allied to a downturn in the commercial office market created an opportunity to bring this building forward for redevelopment.

This month saw the annual +3 Architecture ‘Headspace’ day taking place in the inspiring surroundings of the Baltic art gallery in Gateshead. As the name suggests, the day is an opportunity for the whole company to get away from the intensity of the office, to clear our minds and to reflect on the year gone and plan for the ones ahead. A bag of vintage sweets got the day off to a great if slightly high-octane start and the day was punctuated with thought-provoking presentations from every member of staff in response...
