Ryder and Arup were selected as one of ten winners in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, fending off competition from thousands of international entries. An ideas competition, the challenge called for compelling opportunities where practical application of the evolving technology could be explored. Our Northern Arc proposal – which would link Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool – was one of 34 routes shortlisted.
The building provides modern workspace for over 1,200 people in the science, technology and knowledge based sectors.
Ryder work extensively within the later living sector, approaching each development with a passion to create positive and uplifting places for older residents to live.
The client, C&C, a charitable provider of accommodation and care for the elderly currently owns and operates a 1960s block containing 202 small bedsits. The accommodation is inflexible, the units are too small and no longer regarded as fit for purpose.
Pilgrim Street represents one of the most strategically important city centre regeneration areas in the north of England. This masterplan and massing study was for mixed use development in the southern block of the site. Options were developed and assessed including office, hotel, leisure and residential uses, and generated a public realm strategy for the area. The north of the site extends the city retail core. The south area is mixed use with a significant office development.
