Due to the expansion of their local Nursery offer our existing client appointed us for a Change of use planning application of former restaurant on a prominent site in west Leeds to create a 65 place day nursery.
The existing building currently occupied as a restaurant required internal reconfiguration and rationalisation to facilitate the new use and to align to the operational and functional requirements of the new nursery for the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Calverley Village Nursery’s new facility.
The scheme also involved a reorientation of the existing building to address the frontage car park for secure access and legibility of the proposed nursery. Therefore we proposed a unique intervention in the form of a new entrance/reception area, which offers a subservient counter point to the traditional York stone building; vertical timber rain screen, render, and flat roof with integral roof lights.
Works are due to commence in April 2018, following the recent planning approval, which involved much collaboration with LCC Planning and Transport Development Services to reach an approved scheme on the existing site.
