Wolverhampton Art Gallery by Purcell Miller Tritton

  • Comment
Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton

This project weaves together a number of existing galleries and new building elements, using a back yard to create a new front entrance space whilst still retaining a 'secret' services access yard to the public side. A terracotta prow above the new entrance directs visitors. A top-lit linear entrance draws all the elements together, linking the two entrances and accommodating all the circulation between the new and old galleries. The new triangular gallery works as a centre piece, offering a variety of perspectives and settings for the art.
