Twelve Architects and Masterplanners has restored the Castlefield Viaduct Sky Park in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The Castlefield Viaduct, a Grade II-listed viaduct dating back to Victorian times, has been restored and reinvented in a pilot scheme led by the National Trust and designed by Twelve Architects.

This pilot project seeks to marry the city’s proud industrial heritage with a modern urban park concept. Once used to transport goods, the viaduct has been transformed into a green space that is accessible for all.

Throughout the year, members of the community will be able to experience the park first-hand. Their feedback will shape the vision for the second phase of the project: the permanent regeneration of the viaduct.

This project has been longlisted in the infrastructure and transport project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
