Stephen Lawrence Prize 2015 shortlist: A stage and shelter beside the beach in Littlehampton
Acoustic Shells was a community-led project, and care was taken to ensure all of the community could benefit. Measures included: simple level access to stage and shelter from both the beach-side promenade and the coach drop-off; enhanced acoustics for the bandstand; 100 per cent auditorium access for wheelchairs via ramped access; and that the facility is a clear visual landmark on the promenade, a meeting point, and social hub.
