Little Germany building
Design: Kraus & Schönberg
Tayson House is filling a gap between two Victorian Warehouses in Little Germany, Bradford.
The development of Little Germany took place in various stages. This can be seen in the different sizes of the warehouses. Starting with modest buildings in the early 1830s, design changed towards grander structures in the late 1850s. Tayson House is an expression of the latter, but its direct neighbour is of earlier date and smaller size, therefore leaving a gap.
The new infill structure tries to mediate between the two historical buildings, making a clear statement in its own time – the present.
The new extension is hung from a steel frame creating a minimal interface with the existing buildings. By creating its own architectural language the glass, galvanised steel and timber structure can be seen as a separate entity. This allows a continuity of the industrial character of Little Germany.
