Tate St Ives wins Building of the Year

The winners of the 16th annual Michelmores Property Awards have been revealed, celebrating outstanding property and construction projects in Devon, Somerset, Bristol, Dorset and Cornwall, across ten categories. 

Congratulations to Tate St Ives – winner of Building of the Year sponsored by Girling Jones.

Tate St Ives reopened to the public in October 2017 after undergoing a complete refurbishment of the existing galleries and a four storey extension providing a new gallery, conservation and learning spaces and office accommodation. The Tate now accommodates a quarter of a million visitors each year which is over three times the capacity for which it was originally designed.


The winners were announced at an Awards Dinner on Thursday 7 June at the University of Exeter, hosted by comedian and actor Josh Widdecombe.
