Breathing new life into a forgotten site.
Eaga House was a 1960s office block set within a group of buildings on the edge of Newcastle upon Tyne. It was empty and in a state of dis-repair following the departure of a commercial occupier.
Our proposals sought to transform the existing building into 80 two bed apartments with mixed-use on the ground floor. The development of Eaga House into ONE Jesmond Three Sixty was the first phase of development for the re-imagining of the whole site into a vibrant, mixed-use neighbourhood. Our vision was to create a place where existing and new built form and public realm could combine to create an area with a unique character and with a variety of uses and activities.
Our design proposed a transformation of Eaga House, breathing new life into the existing building which was confused and without any particular character. A simple re-cladding was included to respond to the bricks on the neighbouring terraces and the stonework of the adjacent buildings.
ONE Jesmond Three Sixty is now described as an aspirational new destination with ‘striking architecture, fantastic views and contemporary interior design’.
