What we did
- Architectural consultancy
- Planning consultancy
There will be an additional 2,728 square metres of new floor space provided as part of the proposed development, mostly allocated to the new dwellings but also for assembly and leisure.
The building in Deansgate lies within the Deansgate Conservation Area. The design approach has been to work with and promote the best features of the Conservation Area, maintaining its overall appearance and architectural ethos, whilst providing a range of upgraded and modernised facilities.
The design of the new building takes reference from the Neoclassical style of the Civic Centre on Le Mans Crescent and the former Post Office on the opposite side of Deansgate.
