30 Brown Street is located in the heart of Manchester's business district and conservation area. Our brief was to retain, refurbish and reposition the vacant building within City's office market.

Our design adapted and extended the building's concrete frame with a new steel structure to add additional floorspace. To maximise natural light, the existing brick facade was removed and replaced with a new envelope of curtain walling and fluted stone-coloured cladding infill panels to provide a transition between the Portland stone of the adjoining Edwardian Bank, and the bronze cladding of the adjacent late-1960s office building both of which are Grade II Listed.

The internal layout was similarly re-modelled, with the vertical core rationalised, and a light well retained and repurposed introducing natural light deep into the floorplate.
