Design competition for the extension to Halle St Peter's

Halle St Peter's
Halle St Peter's
Halle St Peter's in Ancoats in Manchester is a Grade 2 listed former church built in 1859 which the Halle orchestra has transformed into a rehearsal and concert venue. Providing the orchestra with a home base and helping in the re-generation of the former industrial area in Ancoats. Now the orchestra has announced a design competition to provide a modern extension to act as Phase 2 of the building's redevelopment. 

The Hallé wants the St. Peter’s extension to be a worthy addition to the industrial architectural heritage of the former cotton mill area of the city, characterised by powerful red brick structures. The new extension will have an important role to play in the urban public space, and will need to provide an appropriate complement to the existing church building. The expressions of interest closes on 13 October 2015 via RIBA Competitions. And we look forward with interest to seeing the results of the selection; up to five entrants will be chosen to participate in the design concept phase of the competition.
