Greenbank House is a substantial mid 19th century detached property located in the eastern corner of Albert Square, to the south of the centre of Altrincham. Its located within the Downs Conservation area.
The proposal is to form a contemporary modern dwelling located within the grounds of Greenbank House on the footprint of an existing garage facility.
The proposed property is uncompromisingly modern with bedrooms located on the ground floor and the primary living space located in the lower ground floor. The main living space opens on to a newly formed sunken courtyard to provide the property with private outdoor space.
The modern form is balanced by the use of traditional brickwork to the elevations and modern bronze additions such as the oriel window that contains a sunken bath to take in the views of the extensive.
