Gatehaus – Bradford
« BackArchitect: Robinson Architects
Robinson Architects is the architectural practice within the multidisciplinary umbrella of Robinson Design Group Ltd. They can accept a wide range of commissions for all types of projects with values between £50,000 and £50,000,000.
The Gatehaus is a landmark residential development in the historic Little Germany quarter of Bradford, comprising 142 apartments grouped round a landscaped court.
The accommodation is separated into 3 elements: a curved glass shard rising to 10 storeys, a 5 storey curved ‘living wall’ fronting the main road, and a more demure 5-storey stone clad block facing Little Germany.
There is some commercial space at street level to provide an active frontage, and 2 levels of below ground parking for 100 cars. Planning was given the go-ahead after Robinson Design Group worked closely with the client Asquith Properties and organisations such as Bradford Centre Regeneration, URBED (Urban, Environment and Design Ltd) and English Heritage on the design for this sensitive site.
