As a permanent feature of the cityscape since 1801, The Hotspur Press will showcase our vision for conscientious restoration and transformation.
Built as a cotton mill on the bank of the Medlock, The Hotspur Press was repurposed some time in the late 1800’s as a printing works, before becoming a place for local artists’ to set up their studios. Situated at the northern end of the First Street regeneration zone, the building forms part of Manchester’s ‘Creative Ribbon’ which includes HOME venue and HOME Arches project.
Today, working with Hodder + Partners architectural practice, we are reimagining the life of this significant building. One which places community and the environment at the heart of our design philosophy.
