Madcap Middlehaven marketing suite opens

Masquerading as a colourful collision between Frank Gehry and Daniel Libeskind, this is actually the new marketing suite at the RiversideOne development at Middlehaven.

The ‘wacky’ competition-winning scheme by local Teesside-based DKS Architects is the first project to be completed within the Will Alsop/Studio Egret West masterplan for the derelict docks site in Middlesbrough.

Inside the £500,000 building, which opened on Friday (4 April), is a large-scale model of FAT’s similarly off-the-wall Community in a Cube (CIAC) scheme, as well as a mock apartment.

CIAC will be one of five residential cubes to be built as part of the £200 million regeneration project, which is being backed by developer BioRegional Quintain together with Tees Valley Regeneration.
