Project Detail

Waterfront House, Leicester

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Winner

Waterfront House is the new 8,000 sqft home of Stephen George + Partners and embodies the practice’s design ethos, business values and vision for the future.

As a shop window for a commercial architectural practice, the building demonstrates not only quality design and environmental awareness but also serves as an exemplar of the architecture that the practice delivers.

The building is set back from a busy road, shielded visually and acoustically by a planted mound that continues from the adjacent wood. Projecting decks take advantage of the views across the adjacent lake.

Project Overview

The building’s articulated gable entrance faces a principle road junction and its car park follows the curvature of the lake. In sympathy with its lakeside setting, modern lines are softened by natural materials.

An ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certification was achieved through solar shading, LED lighting, photovoltaics, solar water heating, and a water-based air conditioning and heat recovery system.

The building facilitates both the needs of the practice now and in the future and improves quality and efficiency. It is an inspirational home and a collaborative working environment.
