Edward Architecture are delighted to be part of the Holbeck Viaduct Project. The feasibility study on behalf of Network Rail and Leeds City Council looks to be exciting the imagination as the story is now featuring on the BBC News website.
Edward Architecture, alongside this inspirationally determined group are working together on a charitable basis to revitalise Holbeck’s disused viaduct and rejuvenate Leeds’s vibrant community.
The 92 atmospheric archways snake through Leeds from Beeston to the City Centre, connecting 1.7 kilometres of disused railway track, providing panoramic views of the city.
The initial concepts are inspired by the industrial heritage of the famous Holbeck brick towers
With the local community at its heart, the Holbeck Viaduct Project is driving to turn this majestic and industrial structure into A community garden, green walkway, arts space, park, cycle path, events hub, public allotment, assault course, cafe, music venue, viewing platform and everything in between.
The 41 sustainable workpods were built on a vacant site beside the Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster and provided flexible open-plan office space over 2 floors.
Each eco-pod strived to achieve a BREEAM ‘very good’ rating through passive solar design solutions which integrate natural ventlation, and the use of rainwater harvesting and recycling.
The Workpods were submitted by Henry Boot Construction and looked to be overjoyed to receive the award, presented by Gaynor Barnes from ITV Calendar at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds.
