hallé, st.peters

The project provides a new home for the Hallé, which is contained within a contemporary building that adjoins the existing listed St. Peter’s Church, Ancoats.

It accommodates a reception and restaurant on the ground floor that benefits from extensive glazing overlooking Cutting Room Square. The concert hall and musical practice rooms are located on the first floor and contained within a timber and corten box. Access to the upper level is via a dramatic staircase that is illuminated by a large glass roof, which provides views of the adjoining church spire.
