Tribeca House, Manchester

Designed by Falconer Chester Hall Architects, the team at Architectural Facades were tasked with creating a completely unique facade for the new headquarters of British fashion brand, Boohoo. 

Situated in a historic conservation area in the bustling Manchester city centre, the brief was to help old meet new whilst paying homage to the historic brick and faience terracotta of the surrounding buildings. 

The client was keen to utilise a Corten steel facade to not only providing a striking finish, but to blend with the red brick of Manchester. It was also required for the Corten fins to be light enough to fix to the glass curtain walling system, whilst concealing the fixings to ensure it met the architect's vision of a 'floating facade' was met. Architectural Facades came up with an innovative solution inspired by technology used in the aerospace industry by covering a lightweight honeycomb aluminium with a thin Corten steel.
