This Grand Designs home in South Manchester was such an exciting project to be involved with. As part of the team delivering an initial concept design by Swedish Architects Trigueiros Architecture, we provided architectural support to TA, including detail design, site support, and statutory approvals from RIBA stages 3-7.
This project was an opportunity to be a key figure in the design and delivery of a truly bespoke family home. Working with visionary clients with a keen eye for design and stunning architecture, and collaboratively alongside an international team of architects, designers, interior designers, and specialist craftsmen, a unique architectural form was created. But more importantly, a fantastic family home was delivered.
In a climate of Covid and unprecedented pressure on the construction industry, the pitfalls of procuring a one-off solution, via an international team were managed and resolved.
With a construction budget of £1.5-2m, the new home delivers circa 600m2 of floor area in an innovative and delightful way, creating unusual and interesting forms. Large areas of glazing over 3 floors, fill the spaces with natural light and allow views across a fully realised external landscape scheme and sunken garage. Each aspect of the design combines and coalesces to make this scheme truly stand out, in what is a highly desirable part of South Manchester.
