In good weather, outdoor events are staged on the entrance plaza. “The restaurant and bar interiors were designed to high standard by the Lovely Pubs group, to create a lively, atmospheric venue that is offered to local people as a bookable destination venue in its own right,” says Jennings.


“The outer apartments are based on Oxbridge-style ‘courtyard living’, where people can meet and talk in the triangular grounds. Apartment balconies overlook the
