Comprising a narrow rectangular site tucked between two much larger buildings down a narrow back street, we identified an opportunity to demolish the existing semi-derelict single storey workshop that occupies the site.
Our vision was to deliver a contemporary urban townhouse inspired by some of the best urban housing around the globe, the post-industrial housing of American cities, the quirky narrow houses of Holland and the neo-modernist multi-storey dwellings of Tokyo.
Our Architects, DLA, have developed a building which we feel fits this brief, a high-quality single dwelling over 5 storeys, including basement, double-height living area with mezzanine floor and a roof terrace offering views out over Ancoats. This ambitious project is intended to provide something not yet seen in Ancoats and a diversification of the housing stock in the area. Planning has been granted for the development and we shall be commencing construction during the Summer of 2016 with completion scheduled for mid 2017.
