Client: Quorum Estates Ltd
Project Type: Public Realm
A high quality plinth for a contemporary refurbishment was created along this retail block with the express intent to reinvigorate this southern gateway into Wilmslow’s exclusive shopping street associated with Alderley Road. A simplified treatment was proposed along the length of frontage and a significant change in level viewed as an opportunity to define a raised space that could accommodate external uses. Bespoke materials and detailing were developed to create a high quality environment reflective of its market town/residential context, such that it is now set to become a catalyst for further business investment into the area.
Key project challenges that were overcome included engagement with local business/delivery of fully accessible environment/interface treatments to existing streetscene/material selection appropriate to context/phased delivery to ensure continuity of trading.
