A dramatic conversion of a tired 1970s office building into student accommodation. The existing building is in the heart of the Lincoln’s Cathedral Quarter and, prior to the conversion work, its ugly brick and concrete façade had, for some time, attracted negative press. The project completely transformed Danesgate House, the six-storey structure being externally re-clad and the interior completely overhauled to provide approximately 250 student flats and studios.
