Situated on the historic William Brown Street, this project included the formation of a new entrance and atrium/circulation area in this Grade I Listed museum building, within a former courtyard. The galleries were upgraded and former unused areas converted to gallery space and office accommodation.
A new plant room was formed below the atrium and conservation repairs undertaken on all external masonry. Eroded stonework and cracked masonry was repaired and embedded iron treated within the Walker Art Gallery. The project was awarded the largest ever HLF grant at the time of construction.
