At present the Aurora building site sits on the southern fringe of Belfast City Centre with most recent re-development work centred on the Lagan River.

The site offers the opportunity to move the regeneration agenda to the southern fringes of the city centre and help join the city with the thriving education quarter at Queens University.

HKR Architects’ proposals seek to address the opportunity to lift the overall quality of the immediate surroundings and at the same time set a new benchmark for the future of the wider city. Entrepreneurial and loyal to Belfast’s past our aim has been to create a confident urban identity that contributes to and enhances the city context.

Clad predominantly in glass the Aurora building seeks to provide a city marker and focal point creating a key gateway into and out of the city centre.

Winter gardens located on the East and West facades will provide round the year amenity space and help to further activate the elevations.
A podium element integrates the Aurora building in form, height and materials with the neighbouring streetscape.
