The Novium Museum In Chichester West Sussex received an RIBA Regional Award 2014 at a ceremony held at Mercedes Benz world in Surrey last night. The accolade was presented to Keith Williams Architects’ director Richard Brown in recognition of the project’s excellence in design.
The project now becomes eligible for an RIBA National Award.
Councillor Myles Cullen, cabinet minster at Chichester District Council, KWA’s Client, said ”The Novium is a stunning building and we are delighted at the recognition it is getting for its design. This award is tremendous news.”
The new museum, designed by Keith Williams Architects, after winning the 2007 RIBA design competition, is located in Tower Street, Chichester in the city’s historic core and in line sight of the city’s cathedral. The Novium sits above the extant remains of the city’s Roman baths which date from the Flavian period (1st century AD) and have been excavated and are on display in their original location in the Novium’s main entrance gallery.
