A new build Aldi store in Chipping Norton situated at Cromwell Business Park, off Banbury Road. The location of this new store required careful consideration of both materials used and the approach to strike a balance between a traditional and modern design in keeping with the local vernacular.
It was important for the visual aesthetics of the building to reflect the traditional design of the local area, therefore a render and stone clad with stone piers was used. The shop front and entrance area to the building were also expressed through an increased height in comparison to the rest of the building and a stone projecting bay acts as a canopy around the entrance area and trolley bay. These designs received overwhelming support with 78% of responses from the public consultation being in favour of the proposals.
