Marks Barfield Architects

Marks Barfield Architects has won planning permission for its £4 million Woking Galleries, to be clad in gold and silver-coloured tiles.The multi-use 'community cultural centre'will be the most distinctive design in a town swamped by 1970s, '80s and '90s buildings. The titanium tiles will be used for the first time in the UK, displaying a pattern developed with the art group Greyworld. The practice won the job through a RIBA competition and building is due to start on the Westgate site in 2005 and finish in 2006. Partner Julia Barfield said: 'It will be a stark contrast but a significant addition to Woking's existing architecture.'
