DJA design for Parkstone Water Tower approved at committee…

We are thrilled to announce that our design for the conversion and extension of the listed Parkstone Water Tower, for Nest Homes, has gained planning approval. Laurie Marlow here at DJA, and Matt Annen at Pure Town Planning secured planning permission yesterday at committee for this important site in Poole. The committee were extremely impressed with the quality of the design and it’s respect for the design heritage of this landmark structure.

Our design involves a single new structure directly behind the tower and subservient to the tower both in terms of scale, height and design language.

Being located behind the tower, the new building links to the tower lightly with clear glass walls, without detracting from the towers stature or presence. The contrasting contemporary design language respects the design heritage of the tower and allows the heritage asset to be ‘better revealed’.

A glass atrium positioned directly behind the tower creates an elegant ‘light weight’ link between the old and new structures.
