Green Zipper

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 city.
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.
