OMI Architects has been founded in 1993 and the firm is one of the leading design-led practices in the North West. Architect Directors, McCall, James, Berry and O’Dwyer head up the practice’s 16 strong team of architects and graduates, based in the former ‘Manchester Baths’. The quality of its work has been recognised with a series of awards for design excellence including 11 national and regional RIBA Awards. OMI is known for a broad range of work including residential, museums and galleries, offices, churches, education, hotels, leisure, community and public buildings, many of which are within sensitive historic settings. The residential work ranges from large-scale city centre apartment schemes to affordable housing in some of the region’s most challenging communities. To date, OMI has built nearly 4000 homes and its recently completed Manchester apartment schemes at Greengate, Alto and Wilburn Wharf are now making their mark on the City’s skyline. When working with existing buildings, OMI achieve harmony and balance between the new and the old, injecting life into what are often tired structures that have lost their way. OMI combine a real sense of interaction, delight and fun, whilst still respecting the dignity of the buildings and places that they engage with.

Live Project

In 1967 Kenzo Tange was assigned by the Municipality of Bologna for the urban development a plan in the Northern area of town.

The master plan is developed around the basic idea of a linear city, organized along a main U-shaped axis.

The buildings are characterized by a sharp vertical development, and arranged around a square of over 7000 sq. mt. These imposing, stimulating structures combine modernity and efficiency to reinterpret a few typical elements of this Emilian city, such as its porticoes and towers. The white cement structure is exhibited decisively, and the large frame supported by cylindrical volumes gives the project its “gigantic” effect.

Among the trading centers of Italian scenario, this episode remains today one of the most important and significant operations.
