Magdalen Street - Colchester

The Magdalen Street development occupies the site of the former Colchester Tramway Depot and borders the Colchester New Town Conservation Area with Grade II listed Almshouses backing onto the site along the southern boundary.  The facade of a former tram shed fronting on to Military Road was retained and integrated within the new scheme.

 

The client brief was to provide a distinctive and contemporary development whilst remaining complementary to the local context and history and provides 252 study beds configured in cluster flats and studios with a dedicated management suite and shared amenity spaces.
