2018 Civic Trust Awards

Winner

15 December 2017

We’re proud to announce that The Point is one of the winners of the 2018 Civic Trust Awards.

The awards programme recognises schemes that improve the built environment through design quality, sustainability, inclusivity and accessibility.

Designed in close collaboration with the young people of Tadley, The Point provides a place for the whole community to gather. The project houses two multi-purpose halls, music room and recording studio, café and a series of activity pods and break-out spaces. The roof, with its dark folded ‘cloak’ appearance, gives the building a contemporary edge whilst internally a series of uplifting spaces create an environment the youngsters want to use every day.

From 234 applications, 60 National and International Winners will be presented with an Award or Commendation at the 59th Annual Civic Trust Awards Ceremony, which will be held at the iconic venue of Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United on Friday 9 March 2018.
