Caruso St John reveals new Tate Britain images

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Caruso St John Architects has unveiled these new images of its £45 million project to refurbish the Tate Britain art gallery in south London

The practice is carrying out a ‘major upgrade’ to the museum’s galleries and core visitor areas while conserving the fabric of Sidney Smith’s 19th-Century building.

Brief requirements are to increase gallery’s capacity and improve conditions for the display of art as well as transform the main entrance and rotunda.

Caruso St John is planning to ‘expose’ the building’s domed atrium and create a new spiral staircase in the rotunda.

New learning studios and public spaces will also be created to meet Tate Britain’s growing visitor footfall. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2011 and is expected to complete in 2013.
