PROJECT REPORT: HOTELS, RESTAURANTS & BARS

its surroundings, with its elevations effectively “wrapped in a veil of landscaping, so the architects “were looking to closely align the two concepts.” The proposal also included two smaller buildings within the public realm (the ‘barn’ and the ‘cabin’), and although these did not end up getting built quite as planned, two pop-up timber kiosks have been erected in their place.

At the project’s outset, the final tenant was not confirmed; Allied was considering multiple restaurant operators, or a series of pop-ups. However, requiring a Manchester location for its brand, the Ivy came out on top of a range of possibles, widening the goalposts somewhat once the initial scheme had gone through planning. “The Ivy came back and said it’s great, but we want more space,” says Allen-Burt.” What was to be a more modest two-storey pavilion is now three stories, plus a roof terrace. The four-storey Ivy restaurant is a permanent venue, albeit only designed for a 25-30 year life, rather than a more common

60 years. Partly inspired by the temporary timber buildings in the square, the exposed glulam frame is based on a regular 6 metre grid pattern formed of 280 mm deep structural elements that are expressed externally. The structure is clearly revealed so that a viewer can understand the building’s floor plates and columns from a quick glance at the exterior.


A grey-painted diagrid of steel bracing sits proud of the timber grid, forming the next layer of the relatively complex facades, largely following Allen-Burt’s initial concept sketch. This structure, which needed to be in steel as timber members would have been “huge,” makes it possible to create 6 metre cantilevers in the structural bays at either end of the building. These deliver the quantum of necessary floor area for the Ivy, while dealing with the issue of building above existing basements beneath Hardman Square. They also provide more visual interest, and provide a canopy and sense of arrival to the main entrance at the northern end, where the building faces onto the approaches into the square. The designers wanted to “make a virtue”
