‘we are delighted to be working with DeTrafford to create a scheme which completes the Castlefield masterplan and is optimised for post-pandemic city centre living. Creating a new green public space for Castlefield and homes which will enhance wellbeing, instil a strong sense of community and embrace working from home’
Designed during the global pandemic Phoenix Works is rethinking city centre living in a post pandemic environment. At DeTrafford, we considered what the residents of Manchester would want from future projects. With working from home a norm in the modern day, and being more conscious than ever before of mental health and wellbeing, Phoenix Works was created around these two elements.
Working from home bays within each apartment provide dedicated workspaces that can be closed off at night to provide an improved home – work separation. All working areas have good access to natural light and views of the urban gardens, creating the perfect setting for young working professionals.
Phoenix Works is the perfect home for local families of Manchester with great schools and Hulme park garden a short walk away. Take a stroll along the local canals of Castlefield and enjoy the green spaces the area has to offer.
