“ARCO2 represent a clear vehicle for visualising, creating and successfully delivering buildings which are of the moment, the past and for the future. Owning a building designed by ARCO2 is both unique and in my opinion timeless.“
Luis Rivero


Located on the ancient quay at the mouth of Penryn Creek, this warehouse is rich with local merchant history and was lain derelict. A quarter of a century and some vandalism later, ARCO2 were brought in to help sympathetically restore and convert the old warehouse and historic Fox’s boatyard.


Materials were removed and reused wherever possible throughout this project, this ensured the sympathetic and sustainable approach.

Recycled Materials:

  • Granite columns removed and used to restore walls and make outdoor seats
  • Fallen bricks used to fix original arches and hallways
  • Reused the bricks of existing chimney stack

Luxury Apartments and Commercial in One

The project overall faced many challenges, however with a great team behind this restoration, The Anchor Warehouse now stands a proud community building as it did once before.

Completed Project:

  • A Dentist Surgery
