Vicus is located on the High Street in Wallsend. The town derives its name as its location is at the end of Hadrian’s Wall.
Our design aspirations were to create a desirable and nourishing environment for living and working alongside one another, similar to the Roman village, or ‘Vicus’ that once stood on the site. This two storey mid-terrace, built in the 19th Century, had fallen into a poor state of repair.
The client approached Greatspace to bring the existing retail units to modern standards, and provide a Change of Use for the unused office space.
