Location: Manchester, UK
Client: Alliance Manchester Business School
The University of Manchester’s Business School reflects the institution’s standing while creating value for the wider community. The project involved renovating and expanding two existing 1970s buildings, adding a new hotel, executive learning centre, retail and landscaped public spaces. Multi-coloured vertical fins on the facade underscore the school’s brand and reduce heat gain within the building. Interior renovations included creating a simple, axial route through three open courtyards and adding dynamic student spaces to encourage collaboration and learning.
