Architects on Dulcie Street

BDP Architects Practice, on Dulcie St, was completed in 2008 at a cost of £4.1 million. The other side is built in a different, more open style and faces the Rochdale canal. We will look at that on other day...

Professor Sir George Grenfell Baines set up the BDP practice in Preston, Lancashire in 1937. In 1951 Grenfell Baines was the only northern architect appointed to design a building for the Festival of Britain in London. (itself the subject of a 50th anniversary retrospective this summer on London's South Bank).


  1. This is a very unique looking place. I will be interested to see the other side.

  2. Wow that's quite an impressive sight, can't wait to see the other side Chrissy!
