Love is Enough converts old railway warehouse to social space

Love is Enough converts old railway warehouse to social space

Cultureplex, on the edge of the city's Northern Quarter, is described as "community centre for a modern city". At its heart is a multipurpose and communal central space that can be used by people throughout the day. The space is likened to a public square and "takes inspiration from Manchester's great libraries and halls, traditionally seen as places of aspiration, democracy and community."

Integrated bench, table and charging stations provide places for individuals to work and there are a variety of seating types to suit different people and purposes. Elsewhere, Cultureplex has an 80-seat restaurant, a small cinema, three adaptable meeting and event spaces and a coffee counter.

For the interior design, Love is Enough sought to celebrate the building's industrial and transportation past, with original features left intact and rail references, such as the type of lighting used. The floor is laid with quarry pavers and there are timber-panelled walls.

Cultureplex, opened at the end of August, is one of multiple tenants in the Ducie Street Warehouse (aka the London Warehouse), which is owned by'Capital and Centric.
