Iconinc, Lincoln 

Winner of LABC Best Purpose Built Accommodation 2021.

Finalist at The National Building Excellence Awards 2021 and The Northern Design Awards 2021, 

Iconinc involved the conversion and extension of an existing school and parish hall in the heart of the conservation area of Lincoln, to provide 140  new residential units for the University of Lincoln.  Despite holdups due to the discovery of archaeological finds,  including medieval skeletons and a Roman wall, this award winning project was completed September 2020.


Roomzzz  Aparthotel, Newcastle

A new 79-unit extension to Roomzzz Aparthotel in the heart of conservation area of Newcastle city centre.
