HAATCH Digital Start-up Offices, Stamford, Lincolnshire

HAATCH is developing a centre for digital start-up businesses and training on a prominent but challenging site in this historic town. The building will include a 150 seat auditorium, cafe and offices.

Planning Permission for the scheme was granted in September 2014.

Our proposed design is for a 4 storey building (plus a basement), but this is articulated as a 3 storey building with its 4th storey set well back from the frontages and accommodated within a mansard/attic roof. The simple classical treatment draws inspiration from significant nearby buildings, but the new building will have a distinct and fresh identity.
