Once the BBC offices on Oxford Road, this area was acquired in 2015 by Bruntwood and has transformed to be Manchester’s new inner-city neighbourhood. Covering an area of 2.4million sq/ft, it hosts green space, office space, retail & leisure, student and living space.
Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios were the main architects with Planit IE being over the landscape elements.
Featuring the Stapel raised planter edge and custom designed-and-built seating modules, the area benefits from several flexible seating options. UK grown Douglas-fir was the preferred timber choice due to its environmental credentials, and also the table area was designed to be wheelchair friendly.
The client wanted to create an open landscaped area in the heart of Manchester. Logic planters create a living landscape around the outerside of the dual side seating area, using straight Stapel raised planter edge that fall and rise with the surrounding area.
Logic also manufactured bespoke seating and benches
