The partnership between the city council client and the architects has delivered an inspiring new civic landmark and a forward-thinking workplace. Located on Sunderland’s former Vaux Brewery site, it is a bold and positive step as part of a wider vision for the city’s and region’s regeneration. Awareness of its physical and cultural context, and commitment to inclusivity and sustainability, all informed its design.
