HALO, SIMPSON STREET : MANCHESTER

Sectors : Homes

Client : Forshaw Land & Property Group

 

Halo is a striking residential development providing 66 apartments in the heart of the Angel Meadow area of Manchester.

Evocative of its historical context but with a modern twist, the scheme incorporates a simple palette of materials – red brick, grey zinc cladding and glazing – and clean, crisp detailing throughout to achieve distinctiveness in Manchester’s busy skyline and embrace more recent developments in the area.

The scale of the six-storey building is offset with columns of recessed balconies that work in harmony with the listed Co-Operative Printing Society building opposite.

The building follows the city’s established urban grid and utilises the topography as access for basement car parking off New Mount Street.
