A unique feel to your interior with hand crafted walls

The Dockyard-Spinningfields, Manchester

Project Description

‘A rustic ale house with a relaxed dining operation that offers simple, quick and tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.’ – The Dockyard, Spinningfields

Our clients, Dawn Vale, had an end vision of what they wanted to achieve at The Dockyard. They wanted a look of the Industrial/Chic nature, so they were drawn to our distinctive DeCorten Rust finish.

DeCorten Rust was applied to the bar front using two different stencils and was also used to create bespoke table tops for small round side tables. DeCorten is a metallic paint that creates the particular “corten steel” effect, and it can be used both internally and externally.

To complete the design concept, our clients opted to have the 120 sqm floor in Grey Micro Cement. Micro Cement was fit for purpose for The Dockyard, with the anticipated foot traffic each day being very high! This product boasts high durability and resistance to water.
