Project 354

Shaws Road

The vacant retail unit marks an important corner of two key streets in the heart of Altrincham town centre. A position that overlooks the regenerated market area, Beggars Square, due for completion 2014.

The unit has been extended to create 50m² of café floorspace over two levels with duel aspect, extensive street frontage and a balcony with a sunny aspect.

The building receives a new contemporary Shaws Road frontage, wrapping around the gable to open up and animate the blank façade by means of a first floor balcony offering shelter to a pavement café. The development offers an opportunity to capitalise on the regeneration benefits and added footfall that the rejuvenated historic market brings to the town.
