Atherton House-Kinetic


Kinetic, formerly known as Atherton House is an office to residential conversion and extension located in Old Trafford, Manchester, providing 48 apartments in the existing concrete framed building and 14 duplex apartments to the two storey extension.

The client's brief called for a sensitive enhancement and extension of the existing building, retaining and breathing new life into the original tiled façade. The structural grid and emphasised floor slabs, which form the architectural language of the existing building, are again expressed in the new elements, presenting a coherent narrative of the building's evolution.
