The original building on this site was erected in 2007, and was bought by the Hole family two years ago. John Hole has worked in sustainability for most of his life, with a wood-burning stove business and latterly in solar panels, eco renovation and development, so was well-qualified to take on the renovation of this abandoned building.

With eco architects Zed Factory acting as consultants, the building will feature a front balcony with a striking canopy of translucent blue PV panels, delivering filtered light to the balcony below. It will be super-insulated, with cutting edge heat pump technology.

The ground floor will be a café restaurant and gym. To make it economically feasible, there will be three amazing apartments on the top floor. This took a huge amount of persuasion to bring the council round, but the work is now approved and the café should be operating by mid summer, with the rest finished by year end.

This development is in progress and a good opportunity to observe the work at the early stages. Viewings during this event will primarily be of the outside of the building, with opportunities to ask questions about the design and build.
