Our new building, HOME, wins RIBA National Award!

Cornerhouse Publications is part of HOME international arts centre in Manchester, and we moved to our new ‘home’ in May 2015.

Now we’re delighted to say that our new building has just been named as a winner of a 2016 National Award by RIBA. As one of 46 winners, it now means that we can be considered for the Stirling Prize shortlist – the biggest prize in UK architecture.

Designed by Dutch architects Mecanoo, the RIBA judges praised their design:

“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”.

They added, “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.”

Since opening, HOME has welcomed over 1 million visitors across its threshold!
