An architect studio is celebrating the completion of three prominent buildings in York’s historic Bootham area that have all recently finished.

Vincent & Brown has worked on Bootham House, Bootham Row and The Quadrant, which all completed this year, delivering 37 new homes in this historic part of York.

The Quadrant is a mixed-use development that includes a commercial unit and eight apartments. It also includes public realm landscaping that has enhanced the local environment.

Bootham House was a conversion of the former Savills office – a red brick Georgian building – into 12 apartments, a mews house and a cottage.

Bootham Row Apartments replaced the former Colin Hicks Garage, just off Bootham Row and the site has now been transformed into 16 new apartments.

Lee Vincent, from Vincent & Brown, said: “As a proud York-based architects’ studio, seeing these projects go from concept to completion is very exciting.

“Bootham is a magnificent part of the city and is a fine example of Georgian architecture. Through the conversions and new build, we have tried to complement the grand architecture with a modern twist, through innovative and sensitive designs.”

Vincent & Brown works on a wide range of residential, commercial and mixed-use developments throughout the UK through its team of 18 people.

The studio is currently working on a number of developments in the city including 20 luxury apartments for the over 55s through conversion of Beverley House on Shipton Road, a hotel scheme on Micklegate and has previously worked on the Fire Station development on Clifford Street.
