Works begins on Redbox's Northern Design Centre
[FIRST LOOK] Construction has started on Redbox Architecture’s proposed new £10 million Northern Design Centre, Baltic Business Quarter, Gateshead
Due to complete in late 2011, the 4,650m² building will house exhibition space, conference facilities, training areas, and incubator space for ‘like-minded’ businesses including product and software designers.
According to the Newcastle-based practice, the centre ‘exudes a sense of innovation and fun’ with its stainless steel mesh-curtain facade penetrated by ‘gold Tecu’ clad two-storey tubular bay windows.
The building sits at the end of the main boulevard which bisects the Baltic Business Quarter and is being hailed as ‘a focus for the developing business community in Gateshead’.
