Ian Simpson gets go-ahead for Manchester flats

  • Comment

Soon-to-rebrand Ian Simpson Architects has won planning for an 11-storey, canalside apartment scheme in Manchester

Earlier this week, the Manchester-based practice announced it was planning a rebrand to recognise the work of co-founder Rachel Haugh.

The company’s Tariff Street scheme, which overlooks the Rochdale Canal and will include 91 one, two and three-bedroom flats, was approved despite objections from more than 50 neighbours.

The building is formed of three ‘tiers’. The first, the practice claims, reflects the scale and material of the neighbouring grade II*-listed warehouse, while the second is clad in aluminium, and the third is a cantilevered glass volume which provides views across the city centre.

Forming part of the wider regeneration of Manchester’s Piccadilly Basin, the masterplan for the area also includes a proposed new station for High Speed 2.

The building is set to start on site in 2015.
