Provident Works - Grade II listed
Client : Nottingham Regeneration
Location : Nottingham
Progress : Completed 2010
Williams-Architects were commissioned by Nottingham Regeneration Ltd in 2008 to restore and extend the small corner building to the Grade II Listed Provident Works. The building had been empty for around 20 years, suffering from water ingress, damp, failing plaster, and damaged windows. The brief was to provide much needed office accommodation, to enhance the rather dull main entrance and to provide a more inviting, modern interior to the main circulation space and stairway.
A simple single-storey ground floor extension provided an entrance and reception area to the new corner building office accommodation.
Originally, there had only been an external timber stair access to the first floor of Provident Lodge, which we have now replaced with an elegant curved suspended first floor link, clad in bronze-coloured metal to give easy access to the first floor.
