Southbank is a development of eight, three and four bedroom townhouses on the banks of Manchester’s historic Bridgewater Canal. Location is all important for this property, as it is placed within walking distance of Altrincham town centre. Altrincham is one of the North Wests most sought after locations, voted ‘best place to live’ in the North West by The Sunday Times for the last two years. Described as a place where suburbia meets utopia, it offers great transport links, schools, green-spaces and community spaces such as the iconic town market and food hall.
Designed by award winning architects, Ollier Smurthwaite, Southbank offers the perfect blend of city-centre flair and refinement within characterful piece of architectural design that includes hints of the areas industrial past.
Internally spacious & bright living accommodations with a modern style provide a sophisticated place to relax, socialise and even work from home. Open-plan living is extensively utilised, linking designer kitchen, dining area and lounge space.
Several spaces are constructed with versatility in mind, allows interior spaces to be reconfigured to produce an additional bedroom, additional reception room with private terrace and/or home office/nursery area.
Maya approached North Made Studio to produce the property marketing imagery for the Southbank development. Our team produced 3 external architectural visualisations. A site plan aerial shot helps to communicate to viewers how the development would be laid-out, with the homes and parking areas being shown. Views of the front and rear of the development were created. The front view showed the main entry to the development, the parking area and frontage of the homes. The rear architectural visualisation of Southbank was the real showstopper, this viewpoint included the Bridgewater canal in the foreground.
Our visualises love it when the opportunity arises to incorporate noteworthy features of the surroundings into the architectural visualisations, elements such as canals allow them to be more creative. Adding eye-catching detail that enhances the sense of realism within the CGIs creating a showpiece that adds extra layers to the property marketing package.
Site photography was capture of the canal, the site location and other surrounding elements to make the visual as realistic as possible. As with many property development sites the location is not always perfect and it often rundown or overgrown. Our team help to hide what is unsightly whilst still offering a high leave of realism, resulting in visuals that look like the location at a moment in time that it looks its best.
The new homes were split into two different layout options, Type A and Type B. Interior visualisation packages were produced for each type, visualisation the key spaces of each and illustrating to viewers the differentiation between them and their fit-out styles.
Visualisation for Type A properties included the following:
Bathroom visual, this included a minimal and contemporary design that featured black fixtures and fittings, bringing a high level of luxury to the space.
Bedroom visual, the luxury theme continued into the bedroom visual, the space was lit via the large window, highlighting the integrated dressing room and en-suite that the bedroom benefits from.
Kitchen/Diner visual, showcasing the sleek fitted kitchen, that extends into the dining space. All overshadowed by the feature window offering views out over the canal and towards Manchester City Centre.
Lounge visual, the open-plan aspect is extended from kitchen to dining to living space, double doors lead to the rear garden that sits beside the canal. Offering waterside living in a unique location.
Type B house setups were showcased by the creation of a smaller set of visuals that highlighted key areas that differ from the Type A layouts.
A bedroom and the kitchen/living space were created in CGI to illustrate the differences and options available to buyers.
