Newlyn Art Gallery by MUMA

New Road, Newlyn, Penzance

The listed Victorian building appears seemingly unchanged when approached from the road. On getting closer, the new slate clad addition hovering behind is revealed. The extension offers a clear uninterrupted view of the sea through the fully glazed entrance and sits on an exposed concrete table. Upstairs, the existing art gallery has been carefully restored and a magnificent sea view framed by a single long window with a narrow slot to the sky.
