Transforming a former commercial property into affordable, modern homes

WS_FInal_Image_01_Uncompressed

In the last few weeks, we have seen the demolition of a former commercial property, which marks the beginning of the build project in Williamson Street, Stockport.

We originally prepared plans for this site back in 2010 and finally secured full planning approval in 2016, working alongside our clients and the local planning authority to ensure our proposals were fully appropriate, compliant and deliverable.

Once approval was received, the process of demolition of the existing building and detailed design of the new development began; working very closely with the new site owners Elmsley Properties Ltd.

We have designed the new houses to enhance the surrounding environment and provide modern accommodation whilst partly reflecting the site’s industrial history.

The site will offer 6 new affordable homes, utilising the maximum space available, providing bright and modern living spaces. The design pays homage to the previous industrial use of the site, by the unique use of brick and zinc externally. We incorporated good access and a private landscaped area into the design, to ensure a fabulous living environment whilst maintaining security and privacy for the occupants.

Construction is due to start shortly with completion due late 2018. We are really looking forward to seeing this site develop, bringing a new style of living and helping to enhance the area by the use of simple, innovative design.

 

Putting your own stamp on a period property // Bump Hall

Bump Hall is a delightful period cottage privately owned & situated within over 4 acres of well-screened south facing grounds with adjoining paddock and woodland glade and located on the edge of the market town of Penistone.

We were pleased to be originally commissioned in 2015 by the owners of this idyllic property to consider design options to create more living space and to make their mark on this much-loved building, adding a new layer of history and updating the accommodation to modern family needs.

Bump Hall is a mainly stone built partly rendered property with various pitched and hipped Yorkshire stone slate roofs. It will be transformed by our planning approved scheme with new modern living spaces while retaining its original character and charm. The new curved rear extension will incorporate further bedrooms along with additional storage space, an office, a gym and a games room whilst rooms in the existing house are also refurbished.

IMG_0283Construction is now well underway and we are looking forward to seeing a perfect blend between 19th Century and modern architecture creating a wonderful new living space when it is complete.
