The revival was aimed at preserving the place’s ancient atmosphere, and, therefore, the Manufaktura is now dominated by genuine industrial architecture, with unplastered red brick buildings. The complex’s trademark is the old, five-storey spinning mill in Ogrodowa Street, built between 1877 and 1878 (which explains the name of the complex). In 2009, a four-star Andel’s hotel opened there. All the other buildings of the complex keep a similar style but are of a lesser size. The exception to this is the main shopping hall, which is a brand-new structure made of glass and steel. It is lower than the surrounding brick buildings, and therefore, it cannot be seen from the outside.
One of the entrances to the Manufaktura complex leads through the ancient, triumphal arch-like gate of the old spinning mill. The whole complex, with its concept of mixing the old and the new, was designed by the British firm Virgile & Stone from London, in collaboration with the French architecture firm Sud Architectes from Lyon. The original industrial buildings were designed by the famous Lodz architect Hilary Majewski in 1872.
