Trinity Riverview is a 35-storey residential tower located on New Bailey Street, next to the listed Albert Bridge which links Manchester City Centre with Salford, across the River Irwell.
The building incorporates 318 apartments with associated resident amenity areas. The site’s highly prominent gateway location required a building of exceptional design quality. A simple architectural form expressed as a single billet of steel was proposed, using silver metallic panels throughout the facade and natural anodised aluminium vertical fins to emphasise the slenderness of the massing.
The first three floors are set back from the street to draw views through to the river and to create an opportunity to incorporate four triple-height, free-standing columns, dramatically signalling the main entrance to the scheme.
A residents’ private dining room and additional amenity areas are arranged in a roof-top box that extends out beyond the main building facade line
