Ubu is undertaking the Stage 4 designs on two schemes for housing group One Manchester.
Comprising 62 two-bed apartments and 105 three-bed townhouses across two sites in Manchester, the Hulme Living proposals focus on the creation of small, compact buildings carefully positioned in existing green spaces. Together, the buildings in Leaf Street and Royce Road form graceful clusters of housing that define the surrounding public and collective spaces, forge new connections, and adapt themselves to existing structures, streets and other open spaces.
The project is One Manchester’s first new build scheme since forming in 2015 following the merger of Eastlands Homes and City South Manchester Housing Trust. All revenues earned from the homes will be reinvested back into local development to help enhance the lives of residents in One Manchester’s communities.
