'beautifully done, I've never seen anything like it'
WINNER / BRONZE MEDAL
THE BARTLETT SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
Collingwood's Vessel: A Retirement Home for Elderly Fishermen, Bigg Market, Newcastle Tutors: Laura Allen, Mark Smout The scheme houses a retirement home and a working men's club for members of Newcastle's fishing community. Taking inspiration from the unique nature of the society, the scheme takes the notion of the ship in an architectural context, to create an ersatz environment which interacts with the city around it as if it were a dry-docked vessel.
