"As one of five RIBA Future Places we are delighted to benefit from the opportunity to work with RIBA and GT3 Architects to ensure that the core issues of poverty and health inequality are addressed in the Council's approach to regeneration."   

Simon Dunstan, Director at GT3 Architects said: "We are proud and excited to have been appointed by RIBA and Gateshead Council to the Future Place initiative for Gateshead Town Centre. Together we have a great opportunity to build on the Council's existing work to develop a community and wellbeing-led vision that benefits the people and economy of Gateshead. Paul and Nicola were born and raised in Gateshead and our practice is based just a few miles away from the town centre. Together we have a huge drive to contribute to its future. We look forward to bringing our masterplanning skills along with our commitment to People Architecture, engagement and community to the project.
