The Agatha Christie Museum, Torquay
This museum proposal was part of a waterfront regeneration project undertaken by Torbay Council.The museum is designed to enhance the existing pavilion of 1911 in which it sits, through the sensitive integration of the new and the original elements. The mood of this museum is taken from the character of the Edwardian Pavilion. It is somewhat indulgent and frothy - very unlike the semi-industrial waterfront language of the Falmouth Museum.
