Maple shine bright (like a diamond) at new hotel development in Manchester

The design possibilities of architectural façades are coming to reality in Manchester city centre.

After months of design, prototypes and manufacture in our factory, we’re started the installation of an imaginative façade for a new hotel in Circle Square.

The £750m development has been described as ‘a million miles from ordinary’. And our façade on the top half of a hotel and car park building is no different. It’s made up of folded aluminium panels that fit together precisely to create a 3D diamond texture that catches the light from different angles.

The façade, powder-coated in grey-white, will stretch upwards from the tenth floor of the 158-bed hotel part of the building. The project is the latest of Maples’ collaborations with architects Leach Rhodes Walker, and has required a close and effective relationship with Russells Construction.
