King's Lynn and West Norfolk

King’s Lynn is an English seaport and market town in Norfolk. Despite its attractive historic centre, King’s Lynn suffers from socio-economic deprivation and reduced market confidence, threatening the future use of the heritage assets.

As part of the Council’s vision to transform King’s Lynn into a “vibrant and prosperous town, where people choose to live, work and visit”, PTE submitted a proposal for the Chapel Street car park site and designed the publication.

During the middle ages King’s Lynn was a member of the Hanseatic League of traders, an affiliated group of towns and cities that dominated trade across the north sea and the Baltic. The period has left a legacy of distinctive Hanseatic architecture across the region, typified by decorative and steeply gabled brick buildings, developed within narrow plots that came together as tight-knit urban burgages. There is a fairytale quality about Hanseatic buildings and as such, the publication that we designed references maps and bed time stories.
