At the launch, held at The RIBA Hub in Manchester, Urban Splash Co-founder Tom Bloxham said: “The city has changed so much since I moved here 30 years ago, when all that existed was dark, satanic mills.”
“No one was motivated to develop anything and the city would empty after 6pm so the change in attitudes in the 1990s, the succession of some very forward thinking city council leaders, ambitious developers like us, ASK, Artisan – and architects and designers who shared our ethos – began taking on some of the challenges that Manchester had to offer.”
‘Transformations’ also includes some of our work for Urban Splash including show homes we have designed for the Park Hill, Saxton and Longlands developments.
