LiveWorks by Flanagan Lawrence has been voted the city’s best new building in Lord Mayor’s Design Awards.

Part of Live Theatre’s evolving cultural quarter in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, the scheme has also been recognised as a Civic Trust Awards National Winner and RIBA National Award.

Flanagan Lawrence’s Live Works has transformed a century-old gap on the Newcastle Quayside into a vibrant public place. The project comprises a new centre for children and young people’s writing in a converted Grade 2 listed almshouse; a vibrant, public ‘pocket park’, which reopens and revitalises the only remaining Georgian courtyard in the city; and a new office building generating rental income that will fund at least one play and education project each year for Live Theatre.
