Nicol Thomas Architects

One Stop Shop

As part of their remit for the regeneration of the local area on behalf of Durham City Council, Keepmoat Partnership appointed Nicol Thomas as Architects following the successful outcome of a design competition.  The brief required us to design an innovative solution for a “One Stop Shop” for the local community to access council services and a Police Contact Centre for victims of assault.

Nicol Thomas delivered feasibility, planning, construction drawings, and Interior Design services.

Key to the success of the design is the internal arrangement of the building around an attractive atrium which incorporates feature “art glass” above the main entrance.  This atrium space assists first time visitors to navigate their route to the appropriate Council Department or Police Contact Centre.
