Co-Working Hub in the epi centre of Cheadle Hulme Village
Abandoned and unloved for a long period, JGB jumped at the chance to give this beautiful old building a new lease on life. Previously there had been a number of plans muted for the Bridgeway... Apartments? Gastro pub? Yet another wine or cocktail bar to add to plethora on Cheadle Hulme's High St? A lack of direction and inspiration meant that all previous plans were shelved. This coupled with devastating effects of covid finally resulting in the building falling into disrepair, enthusiasm waining and frustration of how to best serve the local area.
Through various consultations with the client we began to look at how we could create a space that businesses could thrive in a struggling local economy, whilst faced with the uncertainty of the “new norm” post pandemic. Our team set out to make this 19th-century industrial space feel warm and inviting by installing high-end kitchens and lounges worthy of a luxury residence or modern boutique hotel.
We wanted to add a feel of luxury to the spaces by using quality materials, and being creative with our finishes to enable to achieve the look but not the with the hefty price tag. The addition of the contemporary roof space serves as a central spot for meetings, coworking, a place to recharge, and a flexible event space, All with a dash of signature "Madchester" style thrown in for good measure; from the exposed century-old steelwork, to the replica bank vault door, the industrial-chic of all our custom Crittall doors and screens and the aptly named and beautifully furnished and eye catching amenities and social areas.
