When you walk on to the christmas market there is an atmosphere surrounding you. Yes I know its that christmas thing but I think there is some thing else there too. Its that feeling that you can be anywhere, not just in the centre of Manchester. The selection of different things on offer and the foreign food options all add to the experience. The design is simple yet ingenious. Simple wood structure reinforces that connection to nature. No matter how cold it is outside maybe even snowing (if your lucky) you seem to still feel cosy due to the positioning of the stalls. They are laid out to give the impression of little streets or ally ways. It also has the central hub, the heart of the Christmas Fair. The central stall has no front of rear its open all the way around and unrestricted. The design of this works perfectly. To add to the design and the atmosphere surrounding the stalls they use lighting in the trees, icicles  twinkling and shimmering all around. I love the overall look and feel of this. I will most defiantly be taking inspiration from this space for my own design.
