The Tetris Building is a lively and iconic development located along the arterial ring road near Etihad City in Manchester.
Our aspiration was to achieve an iconic building which acts as a landmark regeneration project to the local area.
The curved site shape gave some clues on how the form could be developed but the design emphasis was on trying to make the form playful and distinctive.
After many successful failures in the design process, one of the ‘Tetris’ shapes was chosen as a simple but powerful form to be applied on the facade with varying versions.
The textured brick mass contrasts well with the smooth, matte-finished gold colour cladding material. The overall building shape keeps the on-looker engaged by its constantly changing vistas as you travel along Hulme Hall Lane.
