SpaceInvader – 11 York Street, Manchester

Winner

Mixology North22 Project of the Year Finalist: 5k-15k sq ft

 

Project Team

  • Aviva, Kier, Hannan Associates

SpaceInvader designed the amenity spaces for 11 York Street, the only Grade A new-build office space in Manchester’s central business district. The design studio’s remit includes a reception, meeting room, cycle store and a rooftop space, a feature intended for tenants to use interchangeably for both wellbeing and work.

Based on the concept of ‘Manchester’s forgotten garden’, 11 York Street’s interiors serve as a tranquil escape for tenants – in contrast with the city’s hustle and bustle. Inspired by the natural landscape, single joinery pieces have been given multiple heights to accommodate planting, seating, and tabletops. Angles and curves through the space offer a winding circulation to aid discovery and create a positive user journey. Backdrop architectural lighting is recessed or surface mounted and subtle, with feature lighting overlayed in irregular forms as a nod to nature’s imperfections.
