Granary Wharf Scheme, Leeds

Design: Carey Jones Chapmantolcher

Granary Wharf includes the only 3-bed apartments in the city among 282 new homes, plus generously sized 2-bed apartments at over 70 sqm.

Granary Wharf Award

Granary Wharf won the Supreme Award at the Housing Design Awards 2011.

The awards judges said the results showed England was “once again building homes of the type and size families depended on before the 2002-2008 rental investor boom unleashed a wave of small 2-bed apartments”.

Granary Wharf : Housing Design Awards 2011 – Supreme Award

Granary Wharf – RIBA Award

RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

Carey Jones’s masterplan for the under-used wharf site between the River Aire and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal envisaged a 20 storey cylindrical residential tower, which the firm delivered, as well as a hotel (by Allies and Morrison) and a residential block (by CZWG).

The design code established a strong material palette (brick) and rigour in the application of the material (window reveals for example) across the site. The choice of brick is entirely appropriate to the strong historical context and the building presented a series of enjoyable, subtle and elegant elevations and useable spaces.

The three schemes complement each other through form and use of materials, though their geometric expressions are very different. The scheme’s next phase will make a direct connection to the station, thereby increasing footfall.
