General Store, Deansgate by Youth
Chris Ramsden

Youth has created a convenience store in Manchester with clean lines and a sleek aesthetic.

The project is located in Manchester's new Deansgate Square development, home to a number of high-rise structures amid the city's red-brick buildings.

The design is inspired by high-end fashion in a nod to both the city's textile industry heritage and its position in the luxury goods sector. The space sees textured tiling, bold monolithic forms clad in stainless steel and smooth polished concrete employed to form an aesthetic that creates an impactful experience for visitors, contrasting with and heightening the reliable dependable nature of the convenience store.

This project has been longlisted in the large retail interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
