Project Description


Ashley Gateway Retail Park


The new development at Ashley Gateway Retail Park provides a landmark foodstore on this prominant access route into Widnes, creating 120,000 ft2 of floor area located above a ground level customer car park.

Due to the prominent location of the site, our client was keen for us to design a store that responded positively to all aspects, culminating on a striking and unique design that has become a beacon of the town. Extensive use of planar glazing, timber cladding, render and blockwork is incorporated within the overall undulating design in both plan and elvation. The focal point of the design are the two render towers containing the customer lifts; separated by a planar glazed link.
