Bath Abbey Highly Commended at World Architecture Festival

8 December 2022

Bath Abbey, conservation and renovation by FCBStudios

One of six FCBStudios projects to be shared at the World Architectural Festival in Lisbon, our work at the medieval Bath Abbey in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, has been Highly commended in the Completed Building: Religion category. The World Architecture Festival celebrates and shares architectural excellence from across the globe through live. It is where the architecture community meets to share expertise and learn from each other.

Hugo Marrack, Partner, presented the history and significance of Bath Abbey to a live audience and judging panel.

Our brief was to prepare the building for its future as both a spiritual and cultural centre in Bath; and in doing so, to create the ‘front-of-house’ spaces that this ancient building needs to prosper, with a low-carbon heating solution to create a comfortable setting for all.
