Lower Broughton Road
The scheme consists of a new build apartment building on a prominent corner site close to the River Irwell in Salford. The proposal is for 59 apartments with a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bed units with associated ground level car parking.
The proposed layout is in direct response to the existing site and surrounding context and consists of a simple ‘L‘ shaped plan. The building form makes reference to the existing terraced housing by providing a continuous active road frontage and creates an enclosed external space behind for concealed secure car parking.
The main entrance and stair core are located at the knuckle of the ‘L’ shape, conveniently close to the corner junction. The car park entrance is positioned away from the busy junction, mid way along Lower Broughton Road. The ground floor level of apartments is raised in response to the flood risk from the nearby River Irwell.
