Chapel Street, Levenshulme, Manchester

Arcon Housing Association

 

This site, which was formally an employment exchange and community centre, had been empty for many years and was stumbled across as surplus to the council’s requirements.

 

The layout for 6 affordable homes integrates the geometry of adjoining street by use of angled bays and in particularly the corner dwelling.

 

The neighbourhood has primarily Victorian and Edwardian terraces the form of which is extended along Gordon Avenue while Chapel Street has a strong frontage and access for vehicle parking between dwellings.
