Scholars Fields, Wythenshawe


Largest new build residential development in Wythenshawe town centre since the completion of the garden city in the 1950's.

The scheme of 147 affordable units are a mix of high quality, contemporary and sustainable apartments and family homes of various sizes to provide a balanced community. To address the issue of the site being enclosed on all sides the masterplan was devised to include the alterations to existing terraces to provide 2 new entrances to maximise the sites potential and create attractive connections.

Whilst the scheme is contemporary and provides 21st century living standards it retains the scale and detail of the original garden city, integrating into the existing urban setting using considered materials and layouts. To ensure the project could be delivered within a constrained budget we worked closely and supported the contractor in delivering viable and economical proposal.

In 20201, the scheme was shortlisted for ‘Best Large Development’ at the First Time Buyer Readers Awards 2021.
