The REGENERATION of the former Randalls Brewery site in the centre of St Helier will be a vibrant and sustainable mixed-use development that includes the retention and adaptive re-use of the Listed Clare House and its historic outbuildings.
The project, which will provide 96 new homes and a new retail unit and office space for Randalls, above basement parking and ancillary areas, is arranged in a series of distinct blocks set around linked courtyard amenity spaces, maximising pedestrian permeability and knitting the scheme back into the surrounding context.
Form and materials reference the Victorian and Edwardian character of the historic core of St Helier, re-imagining this in a subtle, contemporary architectural expression that incorporates familiar features such as vertically proportioned windows, metal mansard roofs, stone detailing and clearly defined plots widths and bays.
Landscape and public realm improvements will deliver a marked increase in the ecological value of the site by removing commercial vehicle traffic and maximising amenity space to create more than 1,000 m2 of urban gardens and planting. The layout and interrelationship of buildings and landscape in this highly accessible, SUSTAINABLE development will also play a crucial role in improving the health and wellbeing of residents, through a HOLISTIC design that will maximum ‘liveability’, with over 70% of apartments being dual aspect and layout and orientation designed to optimise access to daylight and outdoor amenity space
