I like this. A fine addition to the Quays.

Cracking piece of architecture.

By Craig Earley

Another bit of wonky architecture to add to the cacophony at the Quays. I like the building but it doesn’t work here.

By Look at me!

It completely works there. Blends in with the Lowry and IWM which have similar roof designs. Great addition.

By David

Looks good now but what will that cladding look like in a few years time? hhmmmm

By Cheshire Boy

Love it as much as I HATE the fact one side of the waterfront behind has a carpark facing it..Salford…. what were they thinking?!

By Schwyz

Looks great!

There isn’t a single building in any of those shots that looks like it was designed with its context in mind. No visual relationship or dialogue at all. I agree with “Look at me!”, this just adds to the visual mess that is the quays although its a decent building in isolation.

The cantilever section is where all the rubbish is blown from the canal on windy days. Will be a nice addition to the design and a real treat for the customers.

By fancy that

Waterfront Salford??? lol
