Construction is well underway for Modus Architects’ latest project for the new Strathallan Horse Tram Depot.
Designed by Jeremy Humphries of Modus Architects, the new Strathallan Horse Tram Depot emulates the original 1902 building and will complement the tourist attraction’s heritage status and enhance the Douglas Promenades Conservation Area. The planned facility will provide a modern environment in which to store and maintain trams, with first-floor offices and welfare facilities for staff, as well as facilities for the public.
The Strathallan Horse Tram Depot is a part of The Douglas Bay Horse Tramway, which dates back to 1876 and is the oldest remaining operational horse-drawn passenger tramway in the world. The Tramway continues to run the full length of the busy seafront promenades of Douglas, the capital of the Isle of Man, with a fleet of its original tramcars dating from 1883 to 1913. The completion of this project will ensure its preservation for the future.
