Full Time Experience
Gillespies LLP Leeds -
During my time at Gillespies I worked alongside other team members on many projects, notably two regeneration masterplans, one for the Caldew Riverside area of Carlisle and The Minster Quarter in Doncaster, which involved close liaison with steering group members and the wider design team. Smaller projects included individual buildings such as a one off house in Aberford, Leeds and the new Conservatory Restaurant / Cafe at Greenhead Park which, blended an old Victorian glass house with a new timber clad restaurant building.
Central Park, Darlington, The project was to produce a regulating plan and design code matrix for a new development of 600 homes and associated community and commercial buildings near the centre of Darlington. The regulating plan lays down the required standards for design and construction that the developer must meet.
Victoria Viaduct and Caldew Riverside, Carlisle, The project was a Masterplan for the regeneration of a site alongside the Caldew river in Carlisle. Restraints include the bisecting of the site by the river, a railway line, and the West Walls (SAC) creating an isolated site with poor movement and derelict unused space. The masterplan aims to solve the movement problems and bring new life and use to the site creating a new quarter
Minster Quarter, Doncaster The project was a Masterplan for the area around Doncaster Minster. The area is currently isolated by a busy road and is under used and abused. The Masterplan aims to reintegrate the area with the City and help the Minster establish a role for itself in 21st century Doncaster.
Greenhead Park, Huddersfield The project involved work for a stage 2 HLF bid for the restoration of a significant Victorian Park in Huddersfield. The work included plans for the listed conservatory building to secure the structures future as well as providing new café / bar facilities adjacent to it. Additional work at Greenhead Park included work to refurbish the refreshment rooms providing new dining and office accommodation within.
Nyman House, Aberford The project for a private client in Aberford, Leeds was for a new build dwelling within a conservation area. The proposed new house sits on a site that is partly occupied by the clients’ current property part of which will be demolished to make room for the new house. The proposals for the house blend contemporary design with a vernacular twist. The house includes a photography studio on the lower ground floor while the second floor is the master bedroom suite which takes advantage of its height to capture views out from Aberford.
