'the slug'​

hmad|architects won a limited competition to design a new entrance extension to Exeter Civic Centre. Affectionately nicknamed 'the slug' by staff, the new extension provides an organic and curvaceous structure in striking contrast to the cubic form of the original building. The shape and layout of the new and reordered space create a light and airy entrance environment, with the incorporation of calming colours and soft furnishings acting to balance the needs of customers and staff to help make the space work for all.
