Paying homage to the industrial characteristic of Deansgate, with its red-brick Victorian architecture, the contemporary building will be clad in deep, crafted terracota piers to help shade the building and articulate its proportions. The building will also act as a catalyst for the transformation of the surrounding public realm including Lincoln Square and the adjacent Brazennose Street.
