Project story

The reception fit out design by Architects Tim Groom Associates and Youth Studio embodies a profound respect and understanding of the differing relationships between the materials / palette. Aluminium, steel, masonry, brickwork, reclaimed and new Oak, marble, soft wool boucle & woven fabrics. The design prioritised authenticity over embellishment and the Truth of Materials ethos from the Bauhaus movement

The scheme in Manchester’s very own Venice, Castlefield is in the cornerstone of the whole estate which comprises of period offices, bars, restaurants, and leisure facilities. The 1st impression for any building is the reception, this handsome space incorporated basement communal workspace, communal boardroom, informal

and formal meeting space with Crittall glazing and slim-line sliding screens.

Scope of works: demolition, bespoke Aluminium curtain walling, Crittall glazing, bespoke Oak reception desk, high table, service bar, full height cladding. The workshop joinery was manufactured in solid and veneered crown cut Oak with stone ‘wrap over & in-set’ stone tops. Plaster finishes, sheer curtains, upholstery, signage, plumbing, electrical and lighting

The reception fit out works were completed over an 8-week programme. The cast iron period radiators, sophisticated LED lighting, materials used complement the space & the integrity of the original Architect, Roger Stephenson’s vision
