The AJ can reveal the first pictures of Alsop Architects’ ‘Chips’ housing scheme in New Islington, Manchester

 

According to Alsop, the 100m-long, nine-storey building for developer Urban Splash was inspired ‘by three fat chips piled on top of one another’.

The 142-apartment scheme, which sits between the Ashton and Rochdale canals, has a mix of one, two and three-bedroom flats.

The upper storeys are clad in ‘newspaper print’ to ‘echo the industrial heritage of the surrounding Ancoats area’.
