centenary square

Location: Bradford
Client: St James Securities
Status: Completed 2005

Panter Hudspith Architects have worked with developer clients Asda St James to realise this bar and restaurant project overlooking Centenary Square and Bradford Town Hall.

The form and use of the building create a lively and active place in the centre of the city. Sheltering the structure is a single sweeping metal roof that elegantly follows the curve of the building and rises up to face the City Hall.

There are two urban ideas embodied by this gesture; first, to give the scheme a continuity with a sense of movement and second, to create a scale and geometry that helps define Centenary Square, providing a more formal setting for the Town Hall.
