albert’s shed

client: castlefield estates ltd

The Client’s brief was to carefully integrate a quality contemporary building within the existing buildings of the Dukes 92 complex and the historic setting of the Castlefield Conservation Area. The scheme involved the construction of a new building: forming an extension to the existing facilities at Dukes 92. The new building incorporates a ground floor restaurant, and first floor function suite. A new basement accommodates toilet, back of house, cellar and storage area. The new building is defined by a series of interlocking brick walls that vary in height as a response to their particular setting. Three monopitch roof planes continue the theme of the existing adjacent roofs, and give a sense of drama to the new function space within.
