Working with our client Whitecroft Group, we produced a bold and contemporary design for this development of 42 luxury apartments in Manchester’s Castlefield district. The proposed eight-storey development, to be situated at 6 Hulme Hall Road, is made up of one and two-bedroom apartments and two stunning penthouses with roof terraces.
Our contemporary design pays homage to Castlefield’s industrial past. Brick facades are punctured by deep recessed industrial-proportioned openings, to complement the local architecture.
The building fabric is made up of a grey/silver narrow brick, emulating molten metal as a nod to the former ironworks in the area. Meanwhile, a recessed, mirrored zinc-panelled joint separates the two building forms to create a striking silver strip down the centre of the development. This element is designed to be interpreted as the internal metal core of industry, as well as representing how the nearby River Irwell and the Bridgewater Canal bisect Castlefield.
The development features a bold façade and contemporary features, while the stylised interiors will create the perfect home for the modern city dweller. It’s a striking design that also perfectly complements Castlefield’s rich heritage.
