Judges’ Comments

“This audacious addition to Avery Court is a stunning success. From the ammonites in the floor to the soft gold storage boxes, every detail has been finely crafted and delivered. The pale, calm semi-transparent stone structure sits lightly within Avery Court, undistracted by vegetation and drawing the eye by its simple beauty. Inside, it offers perfect light, heat and humidity to provide a stable environment for sensitive musical instruments.   It is a gem, which we hope will be made accessible to the public at some point in the future.”
