Cornwall

"Since the decline of the tin and copper mining industries, the Cornish port of Hayle has lain dormant. Its industrial buildings and imposing structures gradually removed, leaving only the harbour and its network of waterways intact. From the outset we have drawn references from the industrial heritage and the characteristics of Cornish harbourside settlements, but without pastiche. The project is a composition of distinct responses to distinct places, envisaging not only how they will be on completion, but how they will evolve over its lifetime.

For years Hayle Harbour has been seen as a ‘blank canvas’.

The canvas has never been blank, it just needed a frame."
