Tate St IvesWith its prominent spot on the beautiful Cornish coastline, the Tate St Ives art gallery underwent a major extension in October 2017, and we were extremely honoured to be invited to work with Jamie Fobert to help deliver their designs.
In total, we installed around 1,000 sqm of our Diamond polished concrete, with locally sourced granite aggregate used for an added Cornish touch.
Any architectural gallery space is a unique challenge. It needs to be neutral enough not to overwhelm the artworks, but also have a very clear character of its own. James Fobert Architects delivered both to perfection, and the project went on to win numerous awards, including the Civic Trust National Award 2019, RIBA National Award 2019 and ‘Building of the Year’, from Michelmores South West Property Awards.
