5 storey Mixed Use development comprising Ground Floor Retail with 3 Residential Apartment units above, Northern Quarter, Manchester
The brief called for an innovative and creative solution to this tight cleared infill site in the heart of the Northern Quarter in Manchester City Centre. With a site area of approximately 55m2 and frontage of only 5.5m the internal layout was critical to maximise the development potential of the site. With only 1 main façade suitable for windows, we developed an efficient layout maximising every aspect of the design.
Project Challenges: Conservation Area; Extremely Tight Site dimensions, No external areas for servicing, DDA regulations
Project Achievements: 5 storeys in a predominantly 3 and 4 storey area, negotiated a reduced requirement of Design for Access 2 including removing the lift from the scheme
