NTU Architecture Subject Group

Re- Development

Mackie Mayor is an open structure located within Manchester, Northern Quarters. Many individuals in the surrounding area are very familiar with the space. The purpose is to research and redevelop Mackie Mayor with the chosen archive, which in this case is the 18th-century sewing singer machine and clients Mr & Mrs Scott.

Mackie Mayor is currently known for the different variety of urban food venues. Localists arrive at Mackie mayor for delicious beverages. Mackie mayor is located just outside of city centre- Northern quarters.

Developing the light, structure, and overall ambience of the spaces will produce a certain atmosphere within the areas. Materials for the design will be selected and presented in a way that reflects the long-term viability of the site with a touch of modernism and unique style. The environment will be warm and friendly, with a dynamic but pleasant tone.
The aim is to preserve the present structure while preserving the historical architecture. The interior will be renovated to provide a modern yet well-maintained edifice.
I propose renovating the ground and first floors of the original structure. Throughout restorations, contemporary and distinctive appearances for the living quarters of the archivists also the education space, exhibition, bathroom facilities, and storage areas, as well as developing a functional movement throughout the structure.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.

Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.

We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
