The site known collectively as Point Battery and locally as "Hotwalls”, which is Grade I Listed, is located on Broad Street between the Round Tower to the North West and the Square Tower to the South East and faces onto the Solent and the mouth of  Portsmouth Harbour.

Portsmouth City Council appointed ERMC as the Lead Designer, Quantity Surveyors and Contract Administrator for the regeneration of the 1850's artillery barracks and soldier quarters. A grant received from the Government's Coastal Communities Fund, has provided the means to transform and revitalise this historic site in Old Portsmouth into a collection of 13 artist studios with proposed exhibition space in the 'Round Tower' and an adjoining eatery. 

This project has realised sustainable rejuvenation of this renowned monument, enhancing its  significance and securing its future management whilst culturally enriching the local area.
