Cartwright Pickard’s XYZ building for Allied London has been shortlisted for a 2017 RIBA North West Awards.
A new approach to workspace provision in the Spinningfields area of Manchester city centre, our brief was to create commercial workspace, supporting corporate, creative and emerging businesses with innovative, dynamic ‘Grade A’ accommodation, premium hospitality and design-led spaces. This ten-storey building provides a vibrant community hub for tenants, including basement car-parking, cycle hub, communal workspace, gym, café, restaurant, and services concierges for tenants ranging from start-ups to established corporates. This highly fexible workspace allows tenants to completely customise their space, from lighting and heating elements to partition walls and furniture, quickly, easily and at low risk.
The winners will be named at an awards dinner on Wednesday 24 May at Manchester Art School.
