Retail World, Gateshead

Ares Management Limited

A new food, drink and retail terrace with substantial façade improvements at Retail World, Gateshead

A new food and drink hub within the car park of the existing Retail World, Gateshead development. The proposal comprised five new units set within two standalone pods with external seating, public realm alterations, servicing arrangements and reconfigured car parking.

The proposed development takes architectural cues from the surrounding industrial context with new cor-ten ‘look-a-like’ composite cladding whilst blending in to the existing well established retail park.

An additional phase upgraded and improved the façades of the entire existing eastern terrace including the anchor unit at the northern end, which gained a new identity and acts as a bookend to the terrace.
