Pioneering modular apartments
Modular isn't new to us, at Moho in Castlefield we were the first UK developer to bring modular construction to the private homes market. Designed by award-winning architects shedkm, the building has won awards for innovation, design and marketing.
The 102 Moho apartments are designed around a central bathroom and kitchen area, with the living space and bedrooms either side. A large timber decked balcony allows for private outdoor space in addition to the resident's communal garden. With floor to ceiling glazing, Smeg kitchen appliances and storage built into the apartment, including wardrobe space.
Located in Castlfield, Moho has a great community quite literally on its doorstep. Moho residents only need to nip downstairs to the ground floor convenience store if they run out of milk, or to one of the buildings two bars if they fancy a tipple or a bite to eat.
Moho is just a ten minute walk to the city centre along the Bridgewater canal towpath. It has excellent transport links with Cornbrook Metrolink in one direction and Deansgate station in the other, by car there is direct access onto the Mancunian Way and further motorway network.
Meet the designer
At Moho, shedkm designed apartments based on a factory produced pre-fabricated residential unit. Through a series of additional clip-on components they created compact and affordable accommodation. Base modules are supplemented with further prefabricated units such as balconies and dining pods.
