Completion is achieved and Oak House, Park Lane, Leeds is now ready for the 2021 student intake.

Working with clients Maple Grove Development, Yorvale Developments and with contractor GMI Construction through the build phase, brings to a close 3 years of close collaboration on this challenging site.

Planning permission was obtained in December 2019 and works commenced on site in March 2020 (a date etched in all of our minds, as the onset of a new (temporary) norm).

The Architect’s design concept creates a series of linked townhouses, facetted to respond to the curving site boundary fronting onto Park Lane and reflecting the historic street pattern. The scheme graduates in height from 3 to 6 storeys and terminates in a ‘bookend pavilion’ that completes the streetscape and views from Hanover Square.

The local highways were re-configured to facilitate the development and the building structure comprises a combination of reinforced concrete and light gauge structural framing.
