An Allison Pike residential design scheme has been completed by Cheshire Housebuilders on a brownfield site close to the centre of Alderley Edge in Cheshire. Formerly occupied by the Royal Oak pub and car park the site lent itself to redevelopment with high quality new houses.
A challenging “island” site in Manchester’s Northern Quarter comprised a group of old and partly derelict warehouse and former public housing buildings. The design involved the sympathetic conversion and linking of there elements to form a new public house and boutique hotel.
The Public House bar and dining areas are split across two floors, accessed from a classic “London Pub” corner entrance with ground and first floor serveries and a linking feature staircase. Playing on the heritage of the area and the building, the spaces have a warm earthy feel with an informal “lived-in” character. Above this there are fifteen bespoke bedrooms featured recently in the Guardian.
Hydes Brewery commissioned Allison Pike to reconfigure and extend their new acquisition of the former Helsby Arms near Chester.
The design involved adding a large new orangery linked with sliding folding doors to a new dining terrace and beer garden. The orangery features a lantern light and contemporary ceramic flooring to create a light and airy dining space.
Traditional pub values are maintained in the bar areas which are centred around a high quality new hardwood servery with stone backdrop. The project was completed in 12 weeks and opened early December 2014.
