Bath Lane, Leicester

Bath Lane is a large and exciting residential complex, on a landmark location at the gateway to Leicester’s Waterside. The Waterside is an area targeted for substantial regeneration, this site being an important link in the urban design.

The proposal consists of three towers and creates over 400 homes with ancillary accommodation and retail units. The scheme sits on a car parking plinth, with landscaped courtyard gardens above between the towers, which look over the waterside. A set-back from the water creates a public towpath with continuous boat moorings along the waterfront. The building itself employs an ordered and robust design language, with a woven layering of materials and legible composition.
