The judging panel for the Building Beauty Awards led by design writer Stephen Bayley described the winning project, which was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2021, as "perfectly poised". "This was a challenging assignment, given the terrain and the sensitivity of the site as both an ancient monument and a place of natural beauty."
"How best to complement the dramatic context" The answer is not timidity but the kind of boldness that suits the rough and raw Atlantic coast of Cornwall," he said.
"The designers, necessarily, have understood every inch of their canvas and from an intellectual response to the engineering requirements have generated something graceful, perfectly poised, restrained: nothing here is unnecessary but what is necessary has been finessed to the point of beauty."
