The North West chapter of the Royal Institute of British Architects named HOME by Mecanoo as a winner of the 2016 RIBA Regional Awards. According to the jury, “the deceptively simple form and enclosure masks a complexity of interconnected and overlapping spaces and functions that are a lesson in being 'just right'. There's an honesty and lack of pretention within the building that reflects the client brief perfectly.”
HOME is Manchester’s newest place-to-be for theatre, film and visual art, as well as a popular social destination to meet friends or have dinner. At HOME, artists can create work that interrogates and illuminates our existence and experiences today.
“This building delivers a huge cultural asset for the city and region and is an excellent example of how something so complex can be made to look effortless” the jury concludes.
For commissioning HOME, Manchester City Council received the Client of the Year Award. As a regional winner, HOME will now be considered for a RIBA National Award.
