Feilden Clegg Bradley, Allies & Morrison and Hopkins among six teams shortlisted for Peel Holdings scheme

Six teams of architects have been shortlisted for a luxury hotel complex on the site of the former Worsley New Hall in Greater Manchester.

The six shortlisted teams for the Peel Holdings scheme are:

  • Allies & Morrison
  • Edward Cullinan Architects
  • Feilden Clegg Bradley
  • Henning Larsen Architects
  • Hopkins
  • Ian Simpson Architects

The teams were chosen through a competition run by the RIBA.

Peter Nears, strategic planning director for Peel Holdings, said: “The quality of all the entrants was high, making this a difficult choice. We were, in particular, pleased to see the careful consideration of the landscape characteristics of the site displayed by the shortlisted practices.

“The archaeological dig currently being carried out by Salford University has revealed the significant remains of the basement to the New Hall and I am sure this will inspire them - we look forward to the presentation of the final schemes in September.”

The teams will be given until August to work on their design submissions with an exhibition of the shortlisted designs to be held in the Egg space at the University of Salford, MediaCity during September.
