Brazennose House forms the centrepiece in the regeneration of Lincoln Square Manchester. Situated adjacent to Alfred Waterhouse’s Manchester Town Hall, the building celebrates its context in detail and materiality.
It will be surrounded by three key public spaces: Lincoln Square – which fronts the building and forms its address, St Mary’s Church – to the south side a new pocket park will part reveal the façade of The Hidden Gem and Mulberry Square – re-designed and re-landscaped space to the rear.
Brazenness House interacts positively with each public space with retail activity occupying much of the ground floor.

The form of the building is derived from a strict brief to deliver modern, efficient and sustainable office space whilst avoiding complex rights of light issues around the site.
Contextually, the building has a strong vertical emphasis made for masonry with deep fluted reveals in response to the deep textured facades of its Victorian neighbours.
A roof garden on the 5th floor has a backdrop of Alfred Waterhouse’s Town Hall clock tower. The typical upper floors are efficient and designed to maximise flexibility and daylight.
