Parry to extend Grade I-listed Bath museum - image

Eric Parry Architects has revealed the first image of its new extension to the Grade I-listed Holburne Museum of Art in Bath.

The scheme, which was submitted for planning last week, will house an extra 800m2 of 'much-needed' gallery space, as well as creating a new garden café, educational areas and other visitor facilities.

The project will also 'reunite' the historic Sydney Gardens with the city, by recreating a route between Great Pultney Street and the historic gardens.

Describing the design of the proposed building, a spokesman for the practice said: 'The extension is strikingly configured in ceramic and glass, complementing the

original Grade I-listed building and being sympathetic to the museum's collection of

paintings and decorative arts.'

A timescale for the project is not yet known.
