Project Type:Commercial & Workplace
FDG was appointed by APAM asset management to transform the basement to provide additional facilities for the building; showers, changing and cycle storage.
Bridgwater House was built by Harry S. Fairhursts in 1912 in central Manchester. This Grade II listed building required an upgrade of its facilities for its occupants. The purpose of the refurbishment was to promote health and well-being for the users, aligning closely with some of the city’s schemes as ‘cycle to work’.
The space boasts the building’s rich heritage and existing colour palette and incorporates original terrazzo flooring and glazed feature tiles into the design. Working closely with the conservation officers FDG ensured the re-purposing of this space was sympathetic to the historic building fabric and finishes and retained as much of the original features, fixtures, and fittings as possible.
The scheme aligned with the buildings historic materials and colour palette.
