The Metropolitan is a development of 52 apartments in the old police station in Poole, Dorset.
This project involved converting a 1930’s listed building into 1 and 2 bed apartments. We took our inspiration from the stunning architecture and heritage of the building but added our own contemporary twist.
The materials and finishes have a contemporary industrial feel which we felt would appeal to potential purchasers while still referencing the history and style of the building. The design was targeted very much towards a style-conscious younger purchaser looking to live in this unique converted development. We used brass and copper details along with heavily patterned textiles to add a distinctive edge to the final scheme.
