Design for a new Cultural Centre in Northwich, Cheshire, for an RIBA competition. The building is conceived of as a pair of sculptural forms which straddle a new public route between the town centre and the River Weaver. The bold use of black and white for the two parts was inspired by the half-timbered buildings that are such a strong part of the town's identity, while the yellow lift core gives access to a public roof terrace, and acts as a signpost from further away. An existing green area is retained and remodelled as an external performance space.
