Town Quay, Wadebridge

Parkes Lees Architects have designed a series of commercial and residential properties in Wadebridge, which have been built as a riverside development alongside the Camel river and done much to revitalise the town.

‘Town Quay’ is the site of a former farm machinery business near the ancient bridge on the Camel cycle trail. The old industrial shed was given a face-lift with a projecting glazed canopy and converted to retail use. This faces onto a new lively pedestrian square which also contains a rotunda Tourist Information Centre with a conical slated roof surrounded by a paved pedestrian piazza.

Three blocks of luxury residential apartments were constructed overlooking the riverside with gables and balcony features, large sun decks to the top floor apartments, lifts and curved stone walls to the staircases.
