Inspirational Building Visit: The Piece Hall, Halifax
Exposure to exceptional design quality is what drives more innovative and considered architecture. With this in mind, the Race Cottam Design Steering Group took an inaugural building visit to Halifax's beautifully redeveloped Piece Hall and new Central Library, both by LDN Architects, and the fantastic Square Chapel Arts Centre by Evans Vettori.
The photo speaks for itself; sensitive yet exciting interplay between historic and contemporary, reinvigoration of space for public value, and some fantastic detailing.
These trips are being organised quarterly by Project Architect Jacob Peplow, who sits on the Design Steering Group, ensuring we keep an enthusiastic eye on current national projects, local sustainable redevelopment and, simply, quality architectural design.
