We had a great time in the sun at this year's Ouseburn festival! We presented the mixed-use scheme for Lower Steenberg's Yard, for which a planning application will be submitted later this year. We also presented some initial ideas for Malmo Quay. Four architects have been selected through a design competition ran by Northern Architecture. They are Mikhail Riches (main residential block), Featherstone Young (mixed-use residential and commercial units below), AWP (a new cycle hub), and Feix Merlin (restaurant/ cafe)
If you couldn't make it this weekend we have uploaded the boards (just to the right) so please take a look and tell us what your think. We will be launching an online forum to gather comments on the emerging schemes in around a month. For now there are a number of ways of contacting us. You can email comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org or use our freepost address: FREEPOST, URBED, 5th Floor, 10 Little Lever Street, M1 1HR or call Emily on 0161 200 5500.
Specifically - what do you think of our sketch ideas for Malmo Quay? We’d love to know before we start developing ideas with our architects so your comments inform the developing designs.
