Addo were engaged by Confluence to curate and manage the appointment of artists/designers /architects to work on a project located on the river corridor in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire’s county town. Following an open selection process, Studio Weave, an award-winning RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice based in London, have been appointed to create a permanent art installation that will also test new ways of working and reconnecting people, through engagement with the arts, into the process of regenerating the town.
This commission lies at the heart of a 10-year vision for the ancient port of Haverfordwest to be re-imagined as a vibrant and distinctive market town reconnected with its river in full flow and charged by the creativity of its people. It is hoped that Studio Weave’s integrated and ambitious approach will complement and enhance this vision.
We balance a joyful, open-minded approach with technical precision to create a diverse body of work in the UK and abroad for public, private and commercial clients. We value idiosyncrasies, from the characteristics that make somewhere unique, to the particular skills of a master craftsperson. We aim to harness the strengths of a project and its team to create something distinctive and of exceptional quality. Our work has been acknowledged by numerous awards including RIBA South East Building of the Year 2013 for Ecology of Colour, the Architectural Review’s International Emerging Architecture Awards and the Civic Trust Awards where The Longest Bench won the Special Award for Community Impact and Engagement.
