Scheme name: Festival House

Practice: dRMM

Client: Blackpool Council - Capital Projects
 
Photographer: Alex de Rijke

Blackpool is a town in need of regeneration, and key to achieving this is building upon the history of the town's identity as a centre for entertainment and vacation.

The structure of this wedding ceremony hall/tourist information centre consists of pre-fabricated cross-laminated timber panels manufactured off site. This is clad in golden stainless steel shingles above a plinth clad in stepped concrete blocks containing recycled and phosphorescent glass that catches the light. It is rated BREEAM excellent.
