Monks Cross Shopping Park, York
Monks Cross Shopping Park Trust
The illuminated entrance features ensure the park looks fantastic day or night
We designed a series of initiatives at Monks Cross Shopping Park including a complete façade refurbishment, six new pod units and a complete revitalisation of the public realm.
The entire façade has been modernised to provide a contemporary aesthetic for the existing shopfronts. The entrance features have been greatly enhanced by boxing them in illuminated, perforated cladding.
We created a pedestrianised ‘street scene’ to the north of the site by building four small kiosks between the existing retail frontage and the car park. These pods deliver six additional units to the park with minimal impact to the existing parking.
The upgraded public realm delivers raised planting beds and low maintenance street furniture. A section of the promenade has been designed to include elements of play, linking the shopfronts, cafés and restaurants with the existing play area.
A further 22,750 sq.ft retail unit is proposed to the south, creating a new gateway into the site.
