John Dobson House, New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
The original home of John Dobson, a Grade II* listed pavilion, designed and built for his family in 1823. Until recently, it was part of a night club complex, the majority of which is now demolished.
Ainsworth Spark Associates were commissioned to achieve planning approval for in excess of 300 student bedrooms on the site leaving John Dobson House to be restored.
Planning approval was achieved for the complete development in 2015. The restoration of the pavilion is due for completion during 2017.
