King’s Lynn: Rebuilding Identity

King’s Lynn, UK


This project is a response to Historic England’s ‘Heritage Action Zone’ scheme, that aims to use King’s Lynn’s attractive heritage as the lead for the economic rejuvenation of the damaged historic town centre, by using it to attract people and businesses back to the area.

The proposal is to create a series of heritage inspired serviced plots that will be situated on one of the many former ‘slum’ sites that now function as surface level car parks and detract from the centre‘s historic setting. They will be comprised of architectural fragments derived out of the town’s vernacular and will help to guide and determine the character of the later infill. This alternative, architectural planning mechanism will ensure that the much-needed new development is designed and built-in harmony with Lynn’s historically rich urban environment.
