Chairs Award for Design - Winner

Hall for Cornwall (Truro) entered by Burrell Foley Fischer and Cornwall Council
The refurbishment and remodelling of the Grade II* Listed Hall For Cornwall has increased its audience capacity, conserved and restored its important heritage elements and brought them into better use. The new, three-tiered theatre space has provided a new dynamic relationship between performer and audience and enabled the organisation to deliver their artistic vision. Improved access to Arts and Culture for the community of Cornwall will result, together with the facilities required to support a sustainable business model for the organisation.

Judges' comments:
"The theatre design and selection of materials to enhance and protect the building whilst also reflecting the Cornish Coast is outstanding. Their focus on the user experience has delivered theatre to be proud of".
