City centre base is an ideal fit for architects
AN ARCHITECTURAL business with a presence of more than four decades in Hull has relocated in a bid to continue growing.
LNS Partnership has moved from its Beverley Road premises to a modern city centre site in the heart of Kingston Square.
Helen Smith, partner at the practice, said: "We have moved to more compact and appropriate office space to suit our business.
"We were keen to stay in the city centre landscape. Investing and staying in the city was important to us. We have always had a presence in Hull and it's important for us to stay here."

The move to John Street, which was originally built in the 1830s as the headmaster's house for the school that used to stand next door, took place just before Christmas, ready for a new start this year.
Helen works alongside fellow partner Roger Sangwin and while most businesses tend to make a location move and expand its premises in size, LNS has moved to a smaller office.
Helen said: "Architecture has changed and evolved and the large drawing boards that were once synonymous with architects have now been replaced by computer systems, therefore architects no longer need the large spaces they used to."
One of the roles of the architects firm is to adapt and source suitable premises for clients, so a relocation was an easy challenge to conquer.
Helen said: "As experts at this type of work, we set about finding new office space for our business that would suit the equipment we use, the space we need and best fits our business and client needs."
Richard Stott, of Kexgill Consultancy Ltd and landlord of number 28 John Street, said: "This is an old building that has been made modern and flexible and is perfect for a progressive architects such as LNS Partnership."
