Bankhall Lane in Hale started with the original idea of remodelling the existing property housed on the site. However, working alongside the structural engineer, we discovered that the existing foundations weren't sufficient to accommodate the planned changes. The client decided that it would be a better option to build a completely new house but base it on the design of the original property, and they now have a dwelling of 5800 square feet over 4 floors, giving a fantastic level of accommodation.
We are so excited to announce that we have been shortlisted for two schemes in the Northern Design Awards again!

With an increasing amount of modern architectural trends moving towards seamless and frameless glazing, it is no surprise that Juliet balconies are becoming a common feature in many homes. Taking the name from its appearance in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Juliet balconies are best described as a "false balcony" and are often the easiest, most effective way to add a balcony to residential developments, usually without requiring planning permission and major intrusive work to your existing home structure. They are often seen on the side of apartment buildings to enable residents with limited access to outdoor space a little more "fresh air".
