Racquets Court

Location: Newcastle City Centre
Client: Gavurin
Status: Completed 2019

Project Description:
Gavurin, a ‘big data’ company with an international client base, sought to relocate to new offices within the heart of Newcastle, to benefit from their strong links with both Newcastle and Northumbria University.

Gavurin selected this vacant Victorian building on College Street, which dates from 1888, and appointed IDPartnership to develop designs for its conversion for modern office use. The existing building has been enhanced with modern interventions at the entrance, new window openings and a refurbished rooflight, whilst retaining its understated external appearance and interesting features such as the cast iron spiral staircase. The design ensured the building is future-proofed for subletting between ground and first floor, with shared amenities.
