“The Citadel”, Middle Hillgate, Stockport

Phase 1 – The Citadel is a development of 14 No. apartments served off secure, open air access decks. A private, gated courtyard provides 8 No. parking spaces.

The scheme comprises principally of three storeys and realises the redevelopment and conversion of a former Salvation Army Citadel, located within a conservation area close to the town centre.

Two principal street façades have been retained and refurbished to prevent the loss of a key local landmark. The existing building behind the façade was demolished to make way for the new homes.


The project lies under the flight path to Manchester Airport and incorporates acoustic glass specifications and dense roof construction to successfully combat aircraft noise.

Phase 2 – 13 new apartments, over three floors, located on a very tight site. Bridge links to individual apartments, off covered walkways, optimised density and accommodating secure, under croft car parking.

Serrated building form, offers oblique views from private balconies for all upper floor units.
