Redfern House, Dantzic Street, Manchester
Redfern House, Dantzic Street, Manchester
Distinctive building for the Co-operative Wholesale Society by W.A. Johnson and J.W. Cropper, 1936. Further down the road is its almost-twin sister (SJ8498 : 29 Dantzic Street, Manchester). Pevsner says the inspiration is Dutch brick modernism. Of pale-brown brick, with horizontal bands of windows, and a clear affinity with Art Deco in its curves. Service tower on the left. The lettering at the angle is also noteworthy. Grade II listed.
On the right is a sliver of the Co-op's New Century House: SJ8498 : Co-operative Insurance Society Tower and New Century House, Miller Street, Manchester.
