The centre affectionately known by locals as the wedge is diagonally aligned on the site to enrich the public realm. This orientation provides a physical link and axis between the town and the port of Sale. The centre thereby reveals all of its activities to the main street and to the north sun. The palette of materials and boardwalk express the idea of a waterfront building. The interior incorporates spaces for temporary and permanent artwork alongside a vital programmes for the performing arts.
