We are delighted to announce that our Stubbs Mill project has been shortlisted for the 2017 RIBA North West Awards, which are due to be awarded in May.
Stubbs Mill is the transformation of a former machine works into creative workspaces, located in New Islington, along the Ashton Canal. The Mill, created and owned by Joseph Stubbs, was the setting for pioneering production of bobbins and other machine parts. The contemporary conversion, set over three storeys, creates flexible offices split by a central atrium and core. A purposefully raw finish, with exposed steel beams, original machinery and lightly blasted brickwork creates an alternative approach for converting heritage assets.
The winners will be named at an awards dinner on Wednesday 24 May at Manchester Art School.
