SCOPE Public realm and private external amenity space proposals for a 620 unit PRS development at First Street in central Manchester. The proposals include the creation of a mews street, a new public square and large private podium garden.
UNIFIED SPACES The public realm masterplan has been developed to create a series of unified spaces resulting in a high quality external environment for resident and the general public alike to enjoy. The public realm surrounding the development is predominantly hard, integrating reclaimed cobbles into the pavement design to reference the sites historic use. Tree and shrub planting is used to enhance the street scene and soften the otherwise hard environment. Bespoke street furniture is used to unify the distinct areas of public space associated with the development and establish a unique character for development.
