During the visit, staff from The Bazeley Partnership will be able to discuss their aspirations for architecture in the region as well as key projects including their work on the £8 million re-development of Carbis Bay Hotel and the new eco-development of Atlantic View in Widemouth Bay.

Martin Back, director of The Bazeley Partnership, said: “We’re very much looking forward to meeting Stephen Hodder at a time when our own community is carefully considering the development of its built environment.

“Our practice has worked with communities and individuals in Cornwall for more than 100 years and it feels very special to be acknowledged for our contribution in this way.”

Hodder and Back will then attend a private viewing of the Spirit of Place Exhibition at Bude Castle, which has been curated by Jonathan Ball MBE, local Bude architect and co-founder of The Eden Project.
