NoChintz designs new BTR development with social spaces at its core
NoChintz delivers an adaptable, flexible design that speaks to our times, at Affinity Living’s latest Manchester residential project, Riverview.
A sensitive, context driven refurbishment design and styling of the existing Grade II Listed Sir James Black Building at Alderley Park, creating a unique new pub and restaurant with function room, bar and contemporary dining room.
The primary objectives guiding the design process were to respect, restore and extend the original historic buildings to provide a unique, context specific hospitality venue. The design aims to bring order and unity to the existing building via new interior interventions that meet the wide-ranging functional requirements of the end user. The design ethos is to re-affirm the significance of the original buildings, which subtly contrast with the contemporary design elements. Legibility and contextual design are key components of the scheme. Where contemporary interventions are introduced into historic spaces, they are designed independent of the existing interior fabric so not to harm the special architectural and historic interest of the Listed Building. The new bar area is a key feature and focal point within the Tenant’s Hall; its design is freestanding, so it does not connect, damage or interfere with the existing interior shell and decorative period features.
