The jury consider this scheme to be an exemplar of its type and were particularly impressed by the way the architects had manipulated the design to reduce its significant bulk into recognisably human scaled spaces. The integration of the landscape into the design is particularly well handled and the quality of the environment must contribute to the user's wellbeing.
The jury feel that the client is to be commended for taking on a building with so many constraints and that the architect has demonstrated skill and sensitivity in pulling together in disparate parts of the brief. The modern interventions are highly successful and the linkages to the historic quayside and walls are a positive bonus.
