Jonathan Davidson Architects

This project is for the creation of a new live-work unit on a small site in city centre Manchester.

The design response is intended to reflect the different uses through the use of a different architectural language and materials for each of the functions.

The parking and ancillary areas at ground floor level are solid in form and clad in bookmatched marble and above this is the workplace level that is typified by large floor to ceiling glazing panels. The top two floors contain the residential element and are characterized by vertical bronze cladding with inset slot windows.
