Five Years in Manchester

In its first five years, our studio in Manchester has grown beyond our expectations — tripling in size and rising to the challenge of delivering some of the most exciting and diverse projects emerging across the city. We’re privileged to work with fantastic clients across the office, hospitality and residential sectors.

Our portfolio includes a number of key net zero carbon developments, and our expanding interior design team continues to intertwine with our architectural projects. While very much a Manchester practice rooted in the aspirations of the city, we also work outside the North West, with significant projects around the country and beyond.

We are incredibly proud to be part of the diverse and creative community that makes Manchester so unique and have enjoyed sponsoring events like the BCO Manchester Conference and the Manchester Arts Fair.

As our studio continues to grow, we have made great connections with local organisations. As part of our school outreach programme we are working with several city centre secondary state schools to provide an overview of the construction industry and career pathways into architecture through presentations and workshops.

As part of this, our Manchester team have been supporting the RIBA’s Future Architects programme, with several of our architects providing mentorship to Manchester School of Architecture students and Manchester Metropolitan University; giving insight into the fundamental aspects of architecture training and working in a professional practice.

Our team continues to support many charities including Construction Youth Trust through workshops and fundraising.
