All Saints Mill
mixed use residential apartment
The building is a 5-storey Development with a retail unit on ground floor and basement. It has 17 one-bed flats and provides high quality accommodation for postgraduate students and lecturers. The immediate environment along Grosvenor Street consists of a mix of bars, retail, commercial and leisure facilities which link the two thorough fares of Upper Brook Street and Oxford Road.The design concept directly reacts to the existing buildings along Grosvenor Street, consisting of three distinct building types – Art Deco, Victorian Gothic and Georgian. While each of them has its own different material and character, they achieve a streetscape of “vertical pavilions” due to their elevational compositions. In a similar manner the proposed elevation has a vertical emphasis with a solid “bookend” at the corner of York Street reflecting the Art Deco feature at Oxford Road.
