South Quay in Cornwall shortlisted for RIBA South West AwardSouth Quay in Cornwall shortlisted for RIBA South West Award
Situated along the rugged North Cornwall coast, Hayle was the port that served the Cornish and West Devon tin and copper mines and today forms part of a World Heritage Site. Vacant and closed to public access since it was decommissioned in 1969, the first phase of regeneration of the grade 2 listed quay has created 2 acres of new public realm, restored the Victorian sluicing mechanism to Carnsew Pool, and provides an iconic, contemporary food store serving the town centre and surrounding areas.
This development is a vital component in providing the harbour with a vibrant, sustainable future.
All shortlisted projects will be visited in March by the regional judging panel before the winners are announced in Bath on the 1st May.
