Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester

May 27 2007

The scheme comprised in part, the conversion of the ground floor and basement of a Victorian building fronting the street. The scope of works also included the fitting out of commercial space to the rear, that was part of a new mixed use development offering a focus for Chinese arts for Manchester’s significant concentration of people of Chinese descent, as well as Chinese culture nationally. A ‘shop window’ offering views from the street of the reception, shop and tea room immediately draws the public into the building. There are glimpses of other spaces through horizontal glazed slots between the various rooms within the building.
