forgotten spaces design charrette

Our Forgotten Spaces proposals sought to create an animated new face to Runcorn Shopping City, providing new opportunities for local creative businesses. Taking creative inspiration from Runcorn’s cargo industry, ‘plug-in’ shipping containers replace car parking spaces, establishing an efficient, economical and exciting space for a host of new uses. Reinforcing connections back to the community, the adaptable programme consists of roof top food and beverage units, creative workshops and local business workspaces. Combined with this, a children’s play zone, multi-use exhibition hall and a series of pop-up shops help to create a vibrant destination hub in the town centre.
