'We are delighted to be working with Wright & Wright Architects to develop Pallant House Gallery’s ambitious plans for the future. With such significant existing historic and modern architecture at the heart of a beautiful conservation area, we felt that Wright & Wright were the best practice to develop bold plans that will be sensitive and thoughtful, enabling us to better serve the needs of our diverse audiences and community, and to better care for and present our internationally-significant collection.'
Simon Martin, Director of Pallant House Gallery
With a strong community programme and the desire to improve and expand facilities whilst providing greater accessibility for both visitors and staff, the gallery instigated the process following the recent acquisition of a 19th-century Coach House. Wright & Wright’s scope is to create a new collections centre in the Coach House to better preserve the gallery’s internationally celebrated collection of Modern British art. Working with the gallery, Wright & Wright will transform existing spaces to enhance the visitor experience; create new learning, gallery and back of house spaces; improve accessibility for staff and the general public; and build on the gallery’s existing sustainability credentials.
