£78 million. 35,000m

CREATIVE ENTERPRISE CENTRE (GALERI), VICTORIA DOCKS, CAERNARFON Richard Murphy Architects Client: Cwmni Tref Caernarfon This quayside regeneration project in north Wales uses a combination of arts-based commercial enterprise to give vitality to the centre by day, and a multi-purpose hall and studios to bring in activities at night.

£4.4 million. 3,337m
