Festival Hall Blackpool

This project is a £3m wedding chapel with an optimal location of Blackpool’s promenade. The architects ‘de Rijke Marsh Morgan’ said that ‘the town has a highly developed mix of the familiar and the surreal; it has a great sense of the mock monumental’. This is what the architects have attempted to encapsulate in the design of this building. De Rijke also stated the reason that he is most proud of the building. ‘the absence of what you usually see in public buildings: ducts and vents everywhere.’
