Stunning transformation

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Watkin Jones has transformed a once derelict and dejected grade II listed building into a stunning new contemporary living space.

Plas Y Coed in Bangor has undergone a sensitive and complex regeneration programme. It now comprises 12 beautiful apartments that offer modern, open plan living while at the same time enjoying unique elements of the original architecture.

“We knew that this would be a challenging project from the outset,” explained Berwyn Evans, Managing Director of the Homes Division. “Indeed, many developers would not have taken it on. However, we could see the potential that existed within the building and knew we had the technical expertise to deliver something special.”

Classified as a Grade II building means that Plas Y Coed is defined as being ‘of special interest’. Years of neglect and anti-social behaviour had left it in a dilapidated state. The renovation was delivered with painstaking care to create both beautiful new homes and preserve the building’s character.

“We are really proud of this development, knowing rather than being lost forever Plas Y Coed will provide a great place to live for generations to come,” added Berwyn.

Watkin Jones’ ability to transform also recently saw them winning the ‘Altered Building’ category at the Leeds Architecture Awards for their work on CQ The Court, known formally as former St Michael’s College.
