An elegantly crafted office building that completes the revitalisation of St Peter's Square at Manchester's civic heart, addressing three of the city's most important civic and historic buildings: the Town Hall, the Town Hall Extension and the Central Library.
With every aspect of its design we sought to lock Two St Peter's Square in place, embedding it in its surroundings. Form and massing, materiality and articulation were all carefully considered and refined to reflect the quality and character of the building's historic setting within a contemporary and high-performing BREEAM Excellent and EPC A-rated design.
Open and flexible floorplates offer tenants maximum net useable space and benefit from excellent natural daylighting, solar shading and views out to the magnificent buildings nearby. The eye-catching tracery screen cantilevered above its main entrance has become a popular landmark and a marker for the square while the floor-to-ceiling tracery panels bring the character of the building and its historic context into the office floors.
