The property, located on Greenwood Street in Altrincham, is an existing mixed use development housing retail and residential accommodation spread over three floors. The client runs their successful business ‘Grapevine Computers’ from the ground floor retail unit and above is a spacious apartment. The property lies in the busy commercial heart of Altrincham, just along the road from Altrincham Market and opposite the new Health and Wellbeing Centre.
The detailed brief was to split up the ground floor retail area, provide commercial office space in an extension at first floor and make some minor adjustments to the domestic property. KITSON Architecture engaged in a detailed consultation exercise with the client to ensure that various options were considered which met the brief in an imaginative and practical way whilst befitting the properties’ location in the Old Market Place Conservation Area of Altrincham. We secured Full Planning Permission for the chosen scheme which will both complement and enhance this thriving and fast developing part of Altrincham.
