109 princess street

109 Princess Street is a Grade 2 Listed Italianate warehouse constructed in 1863 and designed by the Manchester architects Clegg & Knowles.
The first floor, which sits over the licensed retail space consists of ten ‘pied à terre’ flats, the second and third floors consist primarily of one bedroom apartments and the fourth floor, primarily two bedroom apartments.
Access to apartments is by means of a spine corridor offset about columns, and punctuated by a series of semi-private ‘hollows’, which contain the entrance to each apartment. The hollows are the threshold between semi-public and semi-private zones, providing an individual identity to each apartment as well as containing a bench beside each door.
