With a vast amount of experience working with listed buildings, Barnett Ratcliffe Partnership were approached to renovate and convert a disused Grade II railway goods shed in Stafford (circa 1850) into a play centre for children. In need of significant amount of repairs, the project required a delicate attention to detail to conserve key historical features whilst also creating a space which is child-friendly. The result was an innovative combination of a modern design with historical features and charm. To showcase the aesthetic of the industrial site, glass floors were designed to highlight the railway tracks below, providing visitors with an insight into the industrial past of Stafford.
As the lead architects, we worked closely with the client, planners, conservation officers and interior designers to produce a building which boasted modern comforts and functionalities whilst also retaining its heritage.
