Our Pottery Lane, Wigan scheme will accommodate 126 two-bed apartments in a tiered tapering arrangement along the south side of the Leeds to Liverpool canal. At the head of this scheme is a nine storey block with an at right angle series of accenting and tapering blocks around the canal. The use of repetitive window forms stacked to create a ‘rationalistic’ façade, map over floor-by-floor apartment layouts or two-storey duplex akin to Scottish tenement buildings.
A common upper terrace amenity space over undercroft parking creates a green space at the heart and entrance of the scheme, a welcoming and inviting space that sets the building. The roofline has been fully greened supporting ecosystems along the waterside.
