£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. The building is expressed as three parallel structures with corridors between to create a higher, barn-like central volume for principal performance spaces and the foyer, and a lower three-storey office wing on each side.

£4.4 million. 3,337m
