Since the practice was founded by Rachel Haugh and Ian Simpson in 1987, it has compiled an impressive portfolio of award-winning projects. It originated from a shared belief in the power of high quality design to lead the regeneration of post-industrial cities and initiate new contemporary architectural identities. Main themes are urban renewal, sustainability and design excellence with the aim of designing buildings and spaces that would be appropriate, inspirational and beautiful. While the success of its completed work and growing reputation for design integrity has allowed the practice to expand, Rachel and Ian remain personally involved in each project. Consequently, the inspiration in design and the attention to detail in construction that have stimulated the achievements of the practice so far will continue to guide its schemes in the future.

Live Project

Crown Street Phase Two consists of two residential 51-storey towers, along with a new city centre park and other public structures.

The towers have been designed to provide large apartments and high quality spaces to live, with breathtaking views over the city.

Residents will benefit from luxury amenities including gymnasium, sauna, and private dining rooms. The towers, set at the same height as the adjacent Elizabeth Tower, create a gateway cluster on this key southern approach to the city. The plan form and massing vary to create a composition of three linked but contrasting buildings. The scheme is part of the wider redevelopment of Great Jackson Street are on the edge of Manchester City Centre.

The circular plan form of Tower C5 sits on axis with Victoria Residence on the peninsula of the site. A spiral cladding arrangement has been used to emphasise a feeling of movement around the cylindrical form.
