Station Square, Paignton:  Artist commission opportunity

Station Square, Paignton:  Artist commission opportunity


Ginkgo Projects is working as part of the design team led by QSPM on the enhancements to the public realm outside Paignton Station.  The works to Station Square are being funded by Torbay Council working in partnership with TDA and Torbay Culture and including lottery funding through the Great Place Scheme.

As part of the design we are inviting artists, designers and creative practitioners to register interest in the emerging opportunity to create new works of art and design for Station Square that promote a sense of place and identity.

We wish to commission someone who is experienced in working in the public realm to work with the design team and town community to develop costed concept design proposals over July – September 2018.  On approval of the designs, there is potential for these works to be realized in between January – July 2019.

Our starting point is the creation of a new central meeting area to explore and promote a sense of the particular to Paignton through a strong sense of colour and form with the aim of creating a welcoming area to meet and socialize.

The works budget has yet to be confirmed however we will have a concept design fee of £3,000 ex vat inclusive of expenses. (10 days @ £300 per day). Proposals will be expected to form part of the landscape works which are evolving after a design workshop with interested parties.

An outline brief can be found at  Please register your interest in this opportunity by 10am Monday 25th June or make us aware of the skills you can offer for other similar projects by emailing  Appointment will be made directly through informal interview.
