We are delighted to announce that Hastings Pier has won THREE prestigious RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) awards!
- Regional RIBA award (South East)
- Regional Client of the Year for Hastings Pier Charity
- Regional Project Architect of the Year for Alex de Rijke, dRMM Architects
We are overwhelmed and so excited - what an honour. We'd like to say a massive thank you to Alex and the dRMM Architects team for their incredible work.
Here are a few kind words from the judges:
“The experience of free space and ‘walking on water’ is heightened by the optics of a very beautiful, louvred balustrade design and quality timber deck. The new visitor centre replacing the weakest section of the damaged pier is a relatively simple CLT structure clad in reclaimed timber which was salvaged from the original fire-damaged pier. This helps to create a strong feeling of place and belonging.”
