AJ exclusive: Worsley New Hall finalists unveiled

  • 1 Comment

The AJ can reveal the designs by the six finalists in the RIBA-backed competition to design a five-star hotel on the site of the demolished Worsley New Hall in Greater Manchester

The concept schemes, which have been drawn up by Ian Simpson Architects, Hopkins, Edward Cullinan Architects, Allies & Morrison, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Copenhagen-based Henning Larsen Architects, went on display anonymously at the University of Salford.

The winning proposal will sit on the site of the former Gothic-style country house, built in the 1840s to the designs of Edward Blore but flattened after the Second World War.

Earlier this year archaeology students from the University of Salford discovered ‘significant remains of the basement’ beneath the house, once described as ‘comparable with any of the mansions of the nobility in the north of England’.

Project backer, developer Peel Holdings, will interview the teams and reveal the winner next month.
