St Albans seeks architect for new museum

St Albans City and District Council is seeking an architect to transform its Grade II*-listed Old Town Hall into a new museum and art gallery

The £6.75 million project will relocate an existing museum on Hatfield Road to the George Smith-designed landmark which first opened in 1826.

Planned to open in 2017, the new venue will present 2,000 years of St Albans history spanning from its foundation as the Roman city of Verulamium to the present day.

The Old Town Hall’s court room and former prison cells will be converted into new exhibition spaces and the University of Hertfordshire’s contemporary art gallery will also be moved to the site.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the project is expected to be a focal point for visitors exploring the town and will promote other nearby attractions including St Albans cathedral and Roman theatre.

The deadline for requests to participate is 2 July.
