CLIENT: Malmaison Manchester

PROJECT LOCATION: Manchester | North West

Malmaison Manchester is a 4-star, boutique hotel located on Princess Street in central Manchester. This project was constructed within the premises of the former Phoenix Group House, previously known as Pearl Insurance.


Vision began working with Malmaison Manchester in 2020, building on the success of numerous previous projects and the latest project at Malmaison York in 2022. Tasked with replicating the operational functionality and the concepts of the York hotel, Vision completed the design and implementation of the main restaurant kitchen and bar, in addition to the seductive 7th-floor rooftop bar and restaurant, Sora, for their second Manchester hotel.

Given the diverse layout of this project spanning the basement, ground floor, and the elevated 7th floor, meticulous attention was given to design logistics. Our primary focus was on optimising spatial arrangements to ensure seamless coherence across all levels. In contrast to the York hotel, the Manchester project presented a unique set of challenges, particularly in the scale of the kitchen, which was notably smaller. Prompting the need for creative solutions in the design process to effectively accommodate the limited space.

Despite challenges with site access and scale, the project was a huge success. Vision established a great working relationship with all partners involved and this collaboration facilitated the effective resolution of issues.


"We are pleased with the service and expertise provided by Vision. Throughout the process, they exceeded our expectations in bringing the Bar & Grill and Sora to life. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and commitment to customer satisfaction set them apart. The team listened carefully to our needs and ideas, creating a custom design that perfectly suited our space. Despite the typical challenges of any project, they were resolved promptly through collaboration with our team, the contractor, and subcontractors on site. We confidently recommend Vision for designing, installing, or transforming commercial kitchens, as our ongoing partnership with Vision has consistently met our expectations."
