The building provides 14 apartments, with a mix of one, two and three bed units, over a ground floor accommodating retail use. Evans Granary is the first in a series of new and refurbished buildings as part of our masterplan proposals for Winchester Square. Together they will help re-establish the integrity of the surrounding urban fabric.
Evans Granary engages directly with the historic fabric of Winchester Palace which, in previous centuries, had been embedded within the walls of the surrounding Victorian warehouses. The structure has now been revealed within an external communal space that forms a focus of the rose window wall. In this piazza, a glass enclosure allows the Monument to be enjoyed by the public.
Throughout the design and construction of Evans Granary, we worked closely with English Heritage, the guardians of the Monument, and the Conservation Officer, to ensure the design proposals and their implications within the detailed construction maintained the integrity of the historic fabric during its transformation.
