Former Newland Avenue School, Hull

Former Newland Avenue School, Hull

SECTOR: Housing/Heritage – CONTRACT VALUE: Multi-Million – DATE COMPLETED: unknown

The former Newland Avenue School is mostly unaltered since its change of use to offices and communal group spaces. They still remain a valuable example of Victorian architecture,  being described as some of the best still left in Hull by Pevsner & Neave. The site and buildings have retained their original features such as the large glazed windows, pitched slate roofs, tall open spaces, playing field and the boundary wall.

The proposal is fully residential and the priority with this site is to preserve the original school buildings and boundary wall. These elements will be mostly unchanged, the internal configuration of the original buildings are utilised to divide them into multiple flats on all floors including the available roof space.

New build townhouses are proposed within the site. The arrangement has been directly informed by the existing pattern of development on Reynoldson Street and Marshall Street,  boldly following the existing terrace line and creating an attractive shared garden within the centre of the site. The aesthetic characteristics of the townhouses are supported by the surrounding houses, drawing key features from the them including pitched roofs, recessed openings and brick details.

The scheme has recently been granted planning approved by Hull City Council.
