This very open and spacious room still holds a homey feeling thanks to the perfect choice of colors and furniture. The Saga Chairs immediately stand out and flawlessly match their surroundings. A large central bar in stainless steel and terrazo is the heart of the room.

The space is a modern take on a public square and is inspired by Manchester’s libraries and halls. Love Is Enough tried to retain the classic, industrial Manchester elements as much as possible in this previous railway warehouse. Railway references are still visible, for example in the type of lightning used. The original column system and the rusk brick arches remain intact. Classic Manchester bricks can be found aswell.
