Foundry walks between worlds- a building of its time and all times, unifying nature, grandeur, industry, history. Infused with the essence of its surroundings, Foundry acts as a meaningful bridge between two rare jewels in the local crown- the ancient Tudor mansion, Ordsall Hall and the still more ancient River Irwell, whilst not forgetting the area’s industrial heritage. Referencing the ornate brick details evident around the openings of Ordsall Hall, Foundry’s character and individuality acts as a genius loci- a spirit of place and has proved to be a powerful catalyst for further regeneration. Shortlisted for an RIBA award, Foundry elevates the industrial building to a whole new level.
