La Sagesse is a unique housing development situated within the Jesmond conservation area of Newcastle. Formerly home to La Sagesse Convent School, the estate features a collection of 48 bespoke homes featuring renovated and newly built apartments, four-storey townhouses, refurbished and new lodges, and luxurious detached homes.
La Sagesse subtly combines contemporary style with traditional grandeur. P+HS Architects developed sensitive proposals to redevelop the site, restore the Grade II Listed Building and enhance its setting.
La Sagesse is the first development in the North East to win the coveted Built for Life award for design excellence. This Government-endorsed commendation is for schemes that display good urban design principles to create a sense of place, good street layouts and outstanding homes.
