Heneghan Peng Architects, 2008
Within a two-stage competition initiated by the Co-operative
Group, a master plan was to be designed for an area of eight
hectare in the North of Manchester city centre. The concept for our proposal reflects three main ideas:
1| Connecting the outskirts of Manchester, by extending the
city centre across the dividing Ringroad (Miller Boulevard).
Extension of the local recreation area 'Irkvalley' into the
2| Mixed use: sustainable office buildings within a structure of
roads and public spaces.
3| Integration of industrial and commercial heritage of the
place to promote regeneration of the quarter.
