    Architectural Facades were engaged by Falconer Chester Hall Architects to create a completely unique facade with the brief for the old to meet new in this historic conservation area of city centre Manchester.

    The idea was to provide a modern working environment for the new headquarters of a leading British fashion brand whilst paying respect to the historic brick and faience terracotta of the surrounding buildings.


    The client wanted to use Corten steel across the facade, which, as it oxidises, puts its very own unique 'protective coating' of an orangey-brown 'rust' over the top. Not only is this an attractive finish, it also ties in well with the red brick of Manchester.

    The difficulty was twofold in that Architectural Facades had to make the Corten fins light enough to fix to the glass curtain walling system, whilst still showing no visible fixings, so that the architect’s aspirations that they look like they are 'floating' across the facade were met.

    As a solution, Architectural Facades came up with a unique way to cover a super lightweight honeycomb aluminium with a thin Corten steel, which is similar to technology used in the aerospace industry.

    The final finished effect completely met the brief, with the added steps and alternating directions of the metal fins paying homage to the varied brickwork detailing of the adjacent buildings.
