The Sage Gateshead
UK
1997 - 2004

Opened in December 2004, The Sage Gateshead is a regional music centre of international standing, with more than half a million visitors each year. Designed following extensive consultation with audiences and musicians, the building fills a ‘gap on the map’ for music venues in the North-East and has helped consolidate Tyneside’s position as an arts destination in its own right. The building is already a local landmark, forming the heart of an exciting project to regenerate the area’s river frontage.
