Kampus by Mecanoo

Mecanoo has created a new neighbourhood in the heart of Manchester that harnesses the charm of its historic setting to fashion a new identity.


The project is a new neighbourhood located at the former Manchester Metropolitan University campus in the heart of the city. Utilising the qualities of the existing built structures – Victorian brick canal-side warehouses and the 1964 concrete tower – presents the opportunity to develop at the city block scale, creating new connections and a new destination.

A melting pot of buildings and spaces, the design celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of the city with respect to the historic quality of Canal Street nearby.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
