The Challenge We Had
5plus Architects secured the contract to fully refurbish the existing Grade II listed Town Hall at Trafford Park, at a cost of £22 million. This 96,000 sq ft project was to become the destination venue for both the local community and visitors alike.
The design would create a modern, high quality meeting, conference and dining facility, with provision for 35,000 sq ft of new sustainable office space. The new design centres around four distinction components, creating a two storey high ‘Internal street’ which would act as the main organiser of the building.
The redevelopment of such a public space was open to much debate and consultation, so it was imperative that the architects and developers showcased the design in a positive and inspiring way.
The Collective Agency CGI created a mix of stunning graphics, stills and animations which were all utilised to bring this new public space to life. It showcased the abundance of light and open spaces available and expertly demonstrated how the space would work on a day to day basis.
