Cunniff Design were approached by Parklane to participate in a mini design competition to generate ideas for their Bridge House site in Leeds. The brief was for a tall, landmark building; a totally new icon for Leeds. Cunniff Design created a unique double tower, connected by a parabolic curve making an exciting and unique design. The scheme contained all of the Parklane products along with workplace, leisure and parking. At 40+ storeys the tower was designed to be Leeds tallest building and an icon for the city.

Challenges

Creating a striking piece of urban design whilst also meeting the clients demanding accommodation brief was the main challenge. The two-tower approach allowed us to create flexible floorplates which could respond to the developing brief of this exciting client.

CGI Image

For the main presentation image, we commissioned our own drone photography to get the right view over the city centre. This was then used by our CGI artist to create a montage of our design resulting in the final killer image.
