Public Building

2017 WINNER: CHESTER STORYHOUSE

Chester Storyhouse (Chester) was designed by Bennetts Asociates. PLF Ltd acted as brickwork contractor using Chester Storyhouse bricks by Furness Brick.

The architecture of a 1930s Art Deco cinema has been the springboard for a vibrant and dynamic new public building in the city of Chester. With its major extension housing a new theatre the complex is an inspirational entertainment centre. Although a substantial addition, it does not compromise the significant street presence of the former building.  In architectural style it does not emulate the Art Deco style of the older building. However, the brick for the new structure has been chosen to match the colour and texture of the original ones. Internally the spaces flow well between the original building and the extension. The realisation of the reordered spaces is most impressive providing versatile and inviting spaces. The composition of the building is really elegant and the bold mass of glass and brick elements give the building a real presence. The premises offer an imaginative centre for arts and entertainment and deserves great success.
