This is what the judges had to say:

"OMI Architects have done a rare thing - they have managed to design a building that takes a back seat.  By allowing the existing Bowling Pavilion to remain centre stage, by allowing the landscape to dominate and by semi-burying their new visitors centre into the natural topography, their modestly composed new building gains its stature by doing everything right; quietly rather than imposing its will on its majestic location."

 

The works at Stamford Park were carried out by Casey for Tameside Borough Council.  You can read more about the range of works carried out here.
