Architect appointed for next building at Coventry’s Friargate

Award-winning international architecture and urban design practice Allies and Morrison has been appointed to design the second building to be constructed at Friargate, Coventry’s groundbreaking £100 million city centre regeneration project.

The speculative, headquarters-style office block will be the next of 25 buildings delivered in the scheme which is bringing a new commercial district to the area around Coventry train station, in addition to new public spaces and a tree lined boulevard that will provide improved, direct access to the city centre.

Having already designed the Friargate masterplan and the first building on the scheme – which will house Coventry City Council’s new £40m headquarters - London-based Allies and Morrison benefits from a comprehensive understanding of the project.

Robert Maxwell, partner at Allies and Morrison, said: “We are delighted to be given a further opportunity to design a high quality, energy efficient and attractive building that will provide a pleasant work environment for many years to come. The designs are still in the early stages but we know it will be a contemporary, multi-storey office building that responds to its setting and complements the Coventry Council headquarters and the elegant Grade ll listed train station.”
