The Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne
Project value £6.4m
Commercial sector

3 storey office complex on the site of the former Jesmond Picture House with outside terrace areas on two of the three floors and retail units at ground floor level.  The design of the new building has been designed to resemble the art-deco style of the old picture house which was demolished in 2009. 

The building is a steel framed construction with a number of cantilevered and set back sections to suit the architectural intent.  The building facade was constructed using a rendered finish on an SFS frame to create the required curved elevations.  Cantilevered steel sheet piled walls were used to construct the basement plant room and storage.
