Our design proposals
The design of Phoenix Ironworks responds to the local character and heritage of the conservation area whilst bringing new life to an underused site.
Our design approach maintains the character of Jersey Street, with lower building heights to the south of the site also allowing higher levels of daylight to residents and the inner courtyards.
The proposed height and massing of the buildings respond to the developing context of Ancoats and the Poland Street area more specifically.
Maintaining existing building forms, combined with lower massing on Jersey Street and higher density to the north.
Variations in carefully selected brick colours (including the red brick synonymous with Ancoats) and other materials in the building façades help balance continuity and unique character.
