Contemporary Apartments, Shipley, West Yorkshire

Proposed residential development comprising 6 luxury apartments & parking in Shipley, near Bradford, West Yorkshire / £450,000 approx

Services provided / local authority:

Architectural & Interior Design services / City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council

Project brief:

Our brief for this project was to provide the client with a full architectural and interior design service for a contemporary residential scheme on a fairly restricted site next to the LeedsLiverpool canal in Shipley, West Yorkshire. The previous single storey building occupying the site is to be demolished as it’s life is expired.

The site is located just inside a conservation area, which meant that a parallel conservation application needed to be submitted along with a full planning application, however, after some initial correspondence with Bradford Council’s Planning Department it was considered that a contemporary residential scheme would be the most suitable development for the site, particularly given the nature of other similar recent developments in the immediate vicinity.

“Working alongside a company as creative and professional as Mash Architecture on my recent development in Bradford was an absolute pleasure. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mash to my business associates with a view to them undertaking other similar projects” N.Richards – ASE Projects Ltd

The proposal comprises 2 blocks of three storey accommodation which is split by a central glazed circulation core and blue feature wall. A mix of render and stone has been used for the external walls, although a more vertical emphasis has been placed on this. Each apartment features 2 bedrooms and a large open-plan living aspect.
