Award winning mixed-used city centre scheme in the heart of Exeter's conservation area

Completed in 2007, winning several industry awards, Princesshay hosts over 17.4 million visitors per year. The design process embraced collaborative working with WilkinsonEyre and Panter Hudspith undertaking detailed design for parts of the scheme.

Over 100 residential units

Residential apartments overlook the streets and have outside spaces. Access is provided from the street, clustered around private courtyards on top of the retail.

Economic regeneration

The largest single regeneration in the city’s history, Princesshay has transformed Exeter’s economy and retail scene – with more than £200m injected into the city since its opening. 1,200 people now work at Princesshay, whether in the stores and restaurants or as part of management and ancillary services team

Chapman Taylor produced the masterplan, the detailed design for the central position of the site, the employers requirements and delivery for the whole development including the role of monitoring architect.
