Ducie Street beside the Dale Street canal basin.
This beautiful building on Ducie Street beside the Dale Street Canal Basin is the Manchester home of the architectural practice of Building Design Partnership.  BDP say of the building they designed that it has, " already been recognised as one of the best new buildings in the city. ...the office sets new standards for energy efficiency in the North West of England."  They add that, "We designed a transparent north elevation to catch limited light and complement the canal basin while the street side displays a confident punctuated stainless-steel fa├žade."
