BASE Building, Manchester


Base is a hub for the minds who make and seek sustainable office space in Greater Manchester. The designers approached the Merlin team and tasked them with supplying door furniture that matched the stylish, timeless feel of the building. The space curated for creativity and vibrance needed contemporary ironmongery to reflect the culture. A tasteful mix of stainless steel and satin brass exudes such luxury across the building, also paired with the straight and minimalistic aesthetic of the mitred handles.


Merlin were tasked with matching the satin stainless steel and satin brass specification, therefore the design of the hardware selected was from our Prostyle satin brass and satin stainless steel mitred range, it was also paired with our Prostyle stainless steel concealed closer.


The £21m, 91,000 sq ft office and maker-space development at Manchester Science Park is a hub for Industry 4.0, computer engineering, energy technology and low carbon, robotics, light manufacturing, materials science, gaming and animation businesses.
