South Tyneside Register Office

This bespoke Register Office, commissioned by South Tyneside Council, provides dedicated facilities for weddings, civil partnerships, citizenship events, renewal of vows and naming ceremonies, along with all necessary support spaces. The building is located immediately next to the Town Hall and Civic Offices.

The ceremonial suite can operate independently of the offices and the circulation is designed to progress the groups of visitors through the waiting area and ceremonial rooms into the landscaped, south-facing garden, where photographs may be taken to record their happy event. The building services were designed to maximise comfort while minimising energy consumption in an automatic and unobtrusive manner.
