Contemporary 5000 sq.ft house for private client.
We are delighted to have been involved with this project which was approved by Manchester City Council in June. Occupying a side-garden plot, the property was bespokely designed for the owners of the neighbouring dwelling. As the site is within a conservation area, we explored a number of alternative approaches which varied from traditional to ultra-contemporary. Although resulting in very different appearances, the approaches utilised the same palette of materials that are prevalent in the surrounding conservation area. The property is split over 3 storeys and accommodates a second floor gym as well as a double-height open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The scheme also incorporates renewable energy technologies as well as adopting some Passivhaus principles.
