The Can


Created to complete Custom House Square, The Can is a library, music centre, art gallery and performance space. With a retractable stage it is the focal point of the cultural quarter of the city. The building protects the public from a noisy main road and hugs the stage area. While formed of white concrete the new arts centre is complimentary to and respectful of the protected sandstone Customs House.
