Three Projects Honoured at the Civic Trust Awards
Three of our recent projects have been honoured by the Civic Trust Awards, a scheme that celebrates outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment that tangibly contributes to the surrounding community.
HOME Manchester has been awarded the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design which is named in recognition of architect and 'founding figure of universal design', Selwyn Goldsmith. The jury said of the project - 'This new arts centre is a tribute to good design and patient planning of a new home for the arts in a building that feels welcoming and claearly legible.'
Brighton College Music School has been given a Commendation. The jury said of the school - 'A place of celebration, with views over the home ground to the north, the musical life of the school is visible to the whole school community.'
York Theatre Royal was recognised with a nomination in the Yorkshire and Humberside category.

The presentation discussed the many challenges facing a school theatre and the many things to consider when approaching a new theatre or refurbishment from seating to lighting and more.
Here are a few glimpses from the discussion:
