Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum
Creating more space for a nationally recognised Arts and Crafts collection and attracting national touring exhibitions to Cheltenham were key drivers in the brief to extend Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum.
Berman Guedes Stretton was appointed to extend the gallery following a national RIBA competition. Most of the existing gallery spaces are in the main Grade II listed building which was constructed in 1889 by Knight and Chatters. This was later extended in 1989 by the Borough architects with Sir Hugh Casson as architectural advisor.
The new extension will create additional exhibition space, artefact storage, conservation workshops, flexible education and outreach facilities, a dedicated picture gallery space and an extended cafe and shop. Visitor circulation routes will also be improved.
