TP Bennett retrofits 1970's office building with "Manchester's largest living wall" | Dezeen



This video produced by Dezeen for TP Bennett reveals how the architecture practice has transformed an old building in Manchester into an "ultra sustainable" mixed-use office building.

Called Windmill Green, the office building is a conversion of an unused 1970s structure in the heart of the city that was due to be demolished.

The site has been transformed into a mixed-use co-working space fitted with several sustainable additions geared towards carbon reduction and biodiversity, such as solar panels, beehives, and "Manchester's largest living wall".

"Sustainability was a key driver with this scheme and we transferred a derelict and vacant building into an ultra sustainable and high-spec workplace" said Yvette Hanson, the principal director of TP Bennett, in the video.
"At TP Bennett, we bring a deep commitment to carbon reduction to deliver buildings that better reflect the way people live, work and interact, while at the same time fostering a positive social impact," she added.

Developed in collaboration with real estate investment boutique FORE Partnership, the building features a ground level dedicated to retail and a facade covered with the green terracotta tiles that are typical of buildings in Manchester.
