Hallmark Building/Green Quarter 7 Residential Development – Manchester
Bowman Riley was appointed to deliver the architectural and interior designs on The Hallmark Building, a major residential development at Green Quarter in Manchester, a one million ft2 mixed-use development alongside the River Irk in northern Manchester.
With continued excess demand at Green Quarter, the developer Beaumont Morgan purchased a site with planning already secured to develop a new building entitled The Hallmark Building.
When Bowman Riley became involved in the project, the Hallmark Building had already been designed prior to the 2017 Grenfell tower fire. We were brought on board to work with the concept designs to provide the technical and construction information to deliver the scheme.
Our greatest challenge was to amend the designs to create a safe and secure building following new guidance around building materials and fire safety. This limited the options for the facade of the building and resulted in an amended design.
Additionally, we were involved in providing a detailed package of interior design on the reception and common areas. The interior design for the common areas featured a palette of tonal colours and materials from gold, to marble and timber. We provided a technical package of information involving the creation of a detailed plan and specification for the foyer and reception.
