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,Â a slate parapet roofÂ and architectural stone features replicated from the previous building on the site were used in the building design. This continued and enhanced Â the existing street scene along Huddersfield Road leading Â into Holmfirth town centre..
The site presentedÂ numerous challenges during the construction of the store. These included upgrading an existing culvert running through the site Â and diverting a mains sewer around the new Lidl store. Â 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 wereÂ chosen to both compliment the existing character of the area, and to provide aÂ building that is both contemporary in design, whilst being balanced and contextually appropriate withinÂ its surroundings. Natural stone walling and feature tiling ensured the scheme fits into the surroundingÂ vernacular, whilst contemporary full height glazing and flat panel composite cladding added aÂ contemporary and high quality finish to the design.
This is a mixed use scheme providing an amenity element to a newly created area of residentialÂ properties. It comprises a Doctors, Veterinary Surgery, Nursery, Pharmacy and Retail.
Over two floors, the doctorâ€™s surgery itself comprises a number of administrative facilities, minorÂ surgery rooms, IT services rooms, toilets and consulting rooms with a main reception to theÂ front of the store. The surgery also acts as a GP training facility with a GP training room and GPÂ consulting room to progress the next generation of GPs.
The design is to a scale and form compatible to the adjacent houses, seeking to complementÂ the existing. The facade comprises of stone and render whilst the stone tile roof completes theÂ design.
