An original local builders’ merchant  was converted into townhouses in Chorlton Village in which a strong sense of  local community is embedded.  The development  is consist of 3no. 4- storey houses with a habitable basements, rear & back gardens and roof terrace.  Each house is consist of 2 large split-level living area, 4 bedrooms, a study/laundry room and kitchen & dining basement.


The award winning scheme is an environmental concern development:  from reused and recycling bricks to timber frame structure. Solar panels to recycling rubbish facility. The concept of these  sustainable houses has been actualized not only through selection of materials and fittings but also within its context of the location. This is well-illustrated by the rebuilt facade to original and details like remodelling of the Victorian corbels.

The scheme has not only been the first one achieving the ‘Code for Sustainable Home’ level 3 rating in the North West Region but also won 2 Residential Property Awards 2008 by MEW: the Best New Family Home & Best Sustainable home.


Although there are numerous constraints  of the existing site and setting, the Client is committed to this project in terms of environmental concern and design quality in order to make it as a show piece among its portfolio. The achievement has exemplified this and as a result of close working relationships between the client and the whole design team.
