A building detail of one of the more interesting structures within Gloucester Docks – a corten steel, single-storey restaurant, with sharp lines and a strong presence amongst the much larger, brick-built warehouses.
The corten steel material rusts, erodes and changes during its lifetime, creating almost a living structure.
Part of the Creative Campus at Snape Maltings – a musical rehearsal or temporary exhibition space.

Haworth Tompkins have done an incredible job with this project. The idea and conceptions behind this very simple but effective project are incredible. The Corten steel modern box almost rises from the debris of the past, pointing towards the future, attempting to shrug off it’s old skin.
