Sunday Times/RFAC Building of the Year Award 1995: Shortlisted Entry
shortlisted - riba award for architecture 1995
Harbour Lights is a landmark building located in the former P&O docks, Southampton, with two auditoria for film and video exhibition as well as conferences. The antithesis of the black-box space, the cinema's design provides a refreshing contrast to its multiplex rivals. The foyers, café bar and offices have an open aspect which fully exploit the centre’s dockside location. Harbour Lights is attributed as having had a leading influence on the design of a new generation of cinemas.
