Cardinal House, Manchester
The original dull grey façade has now been transformed with a light glass entrance foyer.
New space is unified with the existing space by the use of a central ceiling panel which leads you into the building and curves into the rear wall.
The interior incorporates a new ‘honed limestone’ stairway. Neutral tones predominate whilst contrasting materials such as brushed stainless steel, cedar and Iroko and bold colours such as shocking pink, reflect the buildings' 1970s origins, yet give a futuristic feel.
