Our Interiors​

The Alan is about finding value where it was lost. Offering something new and unexpected in Manchester. Removing the original plasterboard which made the whole building disproportional, lowered ceilings and cluttered furniture. Exposing the history and heritage features, the brickwork, the original windows and the true tall dimensions of the rooms.

Where a sensitive approach was taken, to reuse and upcycle as much of the materials as possible, repairing and refreshing existing parts of the building and engaging in disrupted waste streams. The ground floor collage of fragmented and discarded marble pieces is a perfect example of this.
