Blackpoint Design has opened up a new office in the center of Manchester in the architecturally stunning Grade II Listed Barton Arcade.

The new office has been situated in central Manchester to meet the demands of a rising client base and growing development opportunities and need for Architectural representations. With the level of development in Manchester set to accelerate in the next few years,  a long with neighboring regeneration hotspot's such as Liverpool, Blackpoint Design are looking to play a key role in the regeneration of these fantastic cities using visualisation to showcase the future development that is arising.

Barton Arcade is a fantastic creative hub in Deansgate that is one of the hidden gem's that Manchester has to offer. If coming to see our new office doesn't sound tempting, the lovely boutique cafes and restaurants that this beautiful Victorian arcade has to offer may just be enough to tempt you!

The LLDC has approved plans for the new Hackney Wickside development designed by BUJ and Ash Sakula architects, with our visualisation team producing the imagery for the scheme. Creating 475 homes and generating ~10,000m2 of creative and commercial space on a former waste site, this fantastic proposal will begin on site next year.  Read more about this exciting project which was published in the Architect's Journal and BDOnline.

Stockwool Architects recently won planning permission to proceed with a 785 home residential development in Ailsa Wharf. The scheme has been shortlisted in this year's planning awards and is a mixed-use regeneration scheme response to the call for housing by the London mayor, creating significant areas of new public realm space.

Our team worked up four more images on the Meridian Water master-plan, this time focusing on the station in collaboration with Network Rail and Karakusevic Carson. It is not often London gets a new railway station, and predictions of up to 4 million people are expected to use the new station every year, and works form part of Network Rail's £170 million of improvements across Upper Lee Valley.

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of collaborating with Haverstock Architects on their recent proposal for a crematorium in Gainsborough. The simple architectural forms work well to delineate clear routes whilst creating pockets of space for contemplation and reflection, and it was up to our team to portray the serene nature of this beautiful scheme.

As a response to Hackney's social housing drive, Ash Sakula have proposed a fantastic resedential scheme on Pedro street which is sensitive to the surrounding context and complimentary of the character of Hackney.
