Islington Wharf Phase 3
A landmark residential scheme which lies adjacent to the attractive waterside setting of the Ashton canal just north of Manchester Piccadilly Station.
The development extends an established residential community and includes 220 new build dwelling units, comprising a mix of town houses together with one, two and three bedroom apartments, accommodated above a ground floor retail plinth and associated decked parking.
The dramatic architectural response creates a homogenous wrapping envelope which defines a mews, branch canal and two landscaped courtyards. A simple palette of materials echo the industrial heritage of the locale while also articulating key routes and private amenity space. The stimulating rhythm and order of the facade is based upon a common planning grid to ensure flexibility for future changes in the housing market.
