The new Lidl store is located in the picturesque town of Holmfirth. The store was designed to compliment and blend in with the surrounding area. Stone walls,¬†a slate parapet roof¬†and architectural stone features replicated from the previous building on the site were used in the building design. This continued and enhanced ¬†the existing street scene along Huddersfield Road leading ¬†into Holmfirth town centre..
The site presented¬†numerous challenges during the construction of the store. These included upgrading an existing culvert running through the site ¬†and diverting a mains sewer around the new Lidl store. ¬†Large retaining structures were also required along the bank of River Holme, to create a level plato for the store and car park to be built.
The brief involved designing a single storey structure, including an open plan retail area, with separate warehousing, delivery and staff welfare spaces.
Materials were¬†chosen to both compliment the existing character of the area, and to provide a¬†building that is both contemporary in design, whilst being balanced and contextually appropriate within¬†its surroundings. Natural stone walling and feature tiling ensured the scheme fits into the surrounding¬†vernacular, whilst contemporary full height glazing and flat panel composite cladding added a¬†contemporary and high quality finish to the design.
This is a mixed use scheme providing an amenity element to a newly created area of residential¬†properties. It comprises a Doctors, Veterinary Surgery, Nursery, Pharmacy and Retail.
Over two floors, the doctor‚Äôs surgery itself comprises a number of administrative facilities, minor¬†surgery rooms, IT services rooms, toilets and consulting rooms with a main reception to the¬†front of the store. The surgery also acts as a GP training facility with a GP training room and GP¬†consulting room to progress the next generation of GPs.
The design is to a scale and form compatible to the adjacent houses, seeking to complement¬†the existing. The facade comprises of stone and render whilst the stone tile roof completes the¬†design.
