irwell riverside

a riverside community created on a disused site

It is the third completed project using these award-winning factory-built homes designed by shedkm for House by Urban Splash.

Set within acres of landscaping and within walking distance from Manchester city centre, the terraced Town Houses are arranged in parallel rows to maximise views to the established river walkway and two new streets. Existing mature trees have been retained to the perimeter of the site and supplemented with new tree-lined streets, a shared residents’ garden and a new public route through the site connecting the surrounding housing with the river.

Inspired by traditional terraced housing, the homes feature projecting balconies, bay windows facing the river and pitched roofs. Generous landscaping, shared surface streets and high-quality finishes give a coherent feel to the public realm.

The houses at Irwell Riverside are the second iteration of Town Houses, which build on the success of those used on earlier sites, but with a host of significant improvements developed through our on-going research and development programme which seeks to improve the design of the house types and the construction process.
