Stamford New Road

Design for the conversion of existing upper floor 3 bedroom maisonette into 2 apartments. Demolition of 1 – 2 storey rear outrigger & replacement with 3 storey element. Remodelling of ground floor to subdivide retail unit & create new apartment entrance.

The property is situated within the Stamford New Road conservation area in Altrincham, characterised by Victorian brick & sandstone detailing and the distinctive complex massing of buildings which have been added to over time. The proportions & layout of the new elements are designed to harmonise with original property whilst allowing the history of the property to be legible.

Black feature metalwork used for balustrades, flashings & windows references the ironwork of the original property. Taking advantage of an opportunity for a dual active frontage was a key aspiration from the town centre neighbourhood business design panel.
