2 New Bailey Square is an inventive workplace building for English Cities Fund and MUSE. The building will provide flexible working environments full of character; referencing the spirit of Salford’s industry and the site’s setting on the River Irwell, the architecture creates a 21st century warehouse for work. The steel structure is exposed and brought to the outside to provide solar shading for an elegantly fabricated façade, while servicing systems and surface finishes are expressed to provide personality to the interior. The street is activated by a mix of complementary uses and each floor level enjoys generous private outside decks. Part of the masterplan for Salford Central that will deliver 9500 new jobs, 180,000 sqm of commercial space and 100 new homes, 2 New Bailey Square will further enhance the work already completed and give a striking new working building for the city.
