Coloured tiles on civic office designed to give the city’s cultural quarter a sense of space

Muse Developments is “putting a sparkle” into Doncaster’s Civic and Cultural Quarter with a selection of coloured terracotta tiles on the exterior of the city’s new civic offices.

The building, designed by Cartwright Pickard Architects and built by contractor Wates, is part of a development of the civic and cultural quarter which will include a performance venue, offices and a square.

Peter Davies, mayor of Doncaster, said: “The coloured tile baguettes are bringing the building to life and putting a sparkle into the Civic and Cultural Quarter.”

Peter Cartwright, director of Cartwright Pickard Architects, added: “The bold and vibrant baguettes will help give the new public realm a sense of place, we are looking forward to seeing the completed installation which is looking stunning at the moment.”

The project is due to be completed in September 2012.
