Design team named for Welsh attraction overhaul

Purcell Miller Tritton (PMT) and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) will oversee the redevelopment of Wales’ most visited heritage attraction, St Fagans National History Museum.

Conservation experts PMT will overhaul the existing gallery and administration block designed by the Percy Thomas Partnership in 1974 while FCBS will design a new building to house an archaeological collection currently housed off-site.

The open-air museum on the outskirts of Cardiff was awarded £450,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund last year and has now officially appointed the team to its ‘Making History’ project.

Opened in 1948 as the Welsh Folk Museum, the museum includes more than 40 buildings which ‘represent the architecture of Wales’, including a nonconformist chapel, a village schoolhouse, a cockpit, a pigsty and a tannery. Almost all of the structures were transported from various parts of Wales and rebuilt on the site.
