King Street, Manchester

Interior Design

Together with client DTZ Investors and Project Manager Cogent BC, we have developed proposals to reconfigure 58-66 King Street to bring city-centre living to the famous shopping destination. The scheme includes 24 one- and two-bedroom apartments over four floors. The apartments will offer luxury accommodation for rent.

The new development comprises the refurbishment and conversion of a former retail and office unit and the upper parts of three historic buildings into residential accommodation including a new entrance and ancillary space at ground and basement level, high-end finishes and new mechanical and electrical services.

Our proposals are in keeping with the buildings historical nature, character and the listed status of 62 King Street. With the aim to provide luxury accommodation befitting this prestigious address, our design strategy has been to utilise the existing building and layout to its maximum advantage, retaining as much of the historical building and its features as possible to create a unique residential offer.

We have used the windows and external views to their maximum advantage, planning the apartments so that the open-plan living areas are located around the perimeter of the building. In most apartments it has still been possible to give bedrooms their own external window. Where this has not been possible, internal windows from bedrooms look onto the living space, providing natural light and views deep into the floor plan.
