ONE GREENGATE MAKES THE LIST OF THE 10 BEST MANCHESTER BUILDINGS IN THE LAST 10 YEARS

“One Greengate is a considered and carefully crafted proposal, with clarity of design when it comes to the use of massing, optimisation of light and space for the apartments. On cleared ground this scheme doesn’t try to talk to the past … and nor should it. Instead it is forthright and positive reboot for the area with a decent profile at the cap, good communal areas and even room for a riverside walk.”

OMI WIN WIRRAL WATERS ‘POP UP’ VILLAGE COMPETITION

OMI have been selected to advance their competition winning designs for a ‘Pop Up’ village at Egerton Square adjacent to Wirral Metropolitan College. The project will incorporate a restaurant, food hub, retail space, gallery, workshop spaces and outdoor entertainment space, centred around a new public square. The scheme will provide local amenities for the emerging Four Bridges quarter of Peel Holdings’ Wirral Waters Masterplan.

The winning solution places a collection of modular prefabricated dwelling like forms around a new public square. The gable fronted ‘house shaped’ modules can be arranged in single or double storey configuration to provide a range of different sized spaces and are designed to reinforce the idea of a village.

The competition winning scheme is currently being tested with potential occupiers and will be submitted for planning approval later in 2017.
