The Beacon project will be within the Hoylake Conservation Area; as such it is important that the fabric of the original building is retained and the overall design aesthetic enhanced. Apologetic or poor quality pastiche will not achieve this... only bold and confident design with high quality materials will. Let there be light!

Building: Albert Mill, Castlefield, Manchester.
Project by: Urban Splash

Albert Mill retains its original features – timber beams, cast iron columns, brickwork and timber floors, adding a contemporary, high specification finish combining the best of the old with the best of the new to create a beautiful space. The generous windows bring lots of natural light. It includes residential as well as office, retail and leisure use spaces.

IMPORTANT: Example only: this does not in any way constitute any proposed design.
