Ahrends Burton and Koralek
Ahrends Burton and Koralek has revised its design to extend the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. The scheme involves two major extensions. The first (pictured), is on the south-west wing and will include a visitor centre, lecture theatre, cafe and visitor room. The second, on the north-west, will be a service area for picture storage, staff quarters and deliveries. The project - which is dependent on a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund - includes plans to refurbish the existing gallery space and relandscape the grounds.
