FURNESS QUAY, SALFORD
Furness Quay is a mixed-use development in the Salford Quays area, comprising 496 dwellings and two commercial units with associated car parking.
The scheme offers a number of one, two and three bedroom apartments each incorporating at least one balcony and more amenity spaces including a communal dining and cinema screening areas.
The architectural expression of the building is conceived as a faceted mass responding to the site characteristics and developing streetscape. A repetitive window module gives efficiency to the build whilst the colouration to each recessed balcony gives a hint of individuality as well as referencing the multi-coloured shipping containers that once stood beside the dock.
