Number One Riverside Rochdale
After a successful design competition, Faulknerbrowns were asked by Rochdale Borough Council to design a new civic office to achieve three strategic objectives:
• rationalization of their estate from thirty-three buildings into one;
• provision of an environment which delivers ‘new ways of working’;
• creation of a sense of community engagement and social transparency.
All of these objectives on their own stimulated and excited the design team; combined, they provided a unique opportunity to develop a special building within the challenging context of an economic downturn.

House in Bowden
North House is a substantial detached family home in a street of impressive Victorian villas and is an example of how an uncompromisingly contemporary house can sit comfortably and calmly in a conservation area and its existence is due to a sympathetic planning officer who recognized on appeal the sensitivity of the composition.

Blackpool is a town in need of regeneration, and a key to achieving this is building upon the history of the town’s identity as a centre for entertainment and vacation. The building provides a restaurant and tourist information centre at promenade level, on the first floor is a registry office, and above that is a wedding ceremony hall with a precisely framed view of Blackpool Tower.
