Tesco Foodstore Newry, Co Down
This two hectare edge of town site is located on one of the main arteries into Newry city. The project comprises a new build 80,000 sq. ft elevated food store, with parking beneath.
The approach was based on an analytical response to the complexities of site and context and the brief requirements, resulting in a creative clearly defined design that maximised this very restrictive site.
The scheme is designed in the ‘Eco-store’ approach, using a pallette of contemporary materials well designed to produce an attractive building and therefore quality experience for the end user. The glazed frontage to Downshire Road is screened in context behind landscaping of new and existing mature trees, with further landscaping to the remaining boundaries.
The sensitive and innovative approach of this scheme along with the restrictive size and nature of this site has resulted in a very efficient attractive design which sits comfortably in its immediate urban context.
