Quayside offers the citizens of Cambridge the first and only urban public space in close proximity to the river, and earned a place in “The Good Place Guide: Urban Design in Britain and Ireland” (2002). It was built to strict commercial constraints for a development company established by Magdalene College and Trafford Park Estates. The form permits spatial variety within its volume, such as top-lit studio-like areas on the upper floor. The main entrance areas have glazed lift shafts within a four-storey void where the stair landings and passages have been designed to encourage conversation and interaction.
