Swindon's Cultural Quarter, Swindon


Our masterplan provides a design framework for delivery of new cultural facilities in response to the needs and aspirations of Swindon's cultural organisations, participants and audiences. Our plan transforms a neglected part of town into a new arts district organised around high quality public spaces. We worked with the Council and its partner arts organisations to develop proposals for an inclusive arts offer to meet local needs and attract audiences from further afield.

Long-term all-round sustainability underpins the emerging concepts, from financial resilience, environmental and societal perspectives, making this the UK’s first net zero carbon cultural quarter.
