Allies and Morrison produced a conceptual masterplan for a development of 220 residential units, alongside commercial and retail facilities, at Kirkstall Forge. Situated in a valley basin on the banks of the River Aire, approximately three kilometres from Leeds city centre, the site is hemmed in on one side by the river and on the other by a wooded hillside. It is home to the ruins of both a medieval abbey and a 400-year old forge.
Various typologies of residential accommodation were proposed, including a significant number of modern family houses, apartments overlooking the forge of the river and the reconfiguration of existing worker’s cottages.
