Sunniside Masterplan, Sunderland

Sunniside is an urban sector due east of Sunderland City Centre containing a number of historically significant and listed buildings peppered amongst more architecturally indistinct buildings and car parks. The site has strong visual and historical links to the River Wear which runs just to the north.

The practice was commissioned by The Sunniside Partnership, a delivery body responsible for the area’s regeneration, to develop the masterplan for the East Sunniside area, incorporating a mix of uses across the site including commercial and residential proposals. These proposals form a new series of public spaces & green tree lined streets with a view to creating a new sustainable community within this sector of the city.
