Our hybrid planning application for Cotton Quay has secured unanimous consent by Salford City Council’s planning committee.

Working for clients Frogmore and Royalton Group, as well as with 2 other architectural practices – Studio Partington & Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher (CJCT), this new waterfront neighbourhood comprises up to 1495 homes, alongside hospitality, leisure, community & retail uses.

SEW have coordinated the overarching place framework, & are undertaking the detailed design of Barbadense Play-Park, which goes beyond a conventional car-park, incorporating a climbing centre & a destination roof-top playground for all ages. At the buildings forecourt, the Barbadense Baths enhance the leisure offering, with new public open-air harbour baths, swimming areas & sauna. The Barbadense Play-Park directly links to the ground level & the towers within the neighbouring Pima Quarter, where we have designed to outline a cluster of 3 slim profile, stepping buildings which provide up to 500 new homes & a 250 room hotel.

As the detailed landscape architect for the whole site, our pioneering, multi-leveled approach to urban green space & play will create an exemplar for Greater Manchester’s plans to be a zero-carbon region.
