Glovers Court, Preston
Client: Glovers Court Preston Ltd
An historic Preston printworks, formerly known as the Victorian Lambert Brothers’ printing press is being completely restored and regenerated to create state of the art office accommodation spread over three floors. The bespoke contemporary office space will be a fine heritage asset to the city.
Frank Whittle Partnership worked alongside Preston City Council to help secure £350K of Heritage Lottery funding for the restoration and remodelling of the building.
The design combines sleek, contemporary architecture with exposed original brickwork. The restoration of a magnificent vaulted ceiling on the second floor and several exposed original timber roof trusses are some of the impressive design features.
