Oriel Davies Gallery seeks regeneration architect

The Oriel Davies Gallery
  • Comment

The Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown, Powys is seeking an architect for the third phase of its regeneration

Founded in 1982 in Welshpool, the high-profile gallery relocated to its current home inside Newtown’s 1967 Davies Memorial Gallery thirty years ago.

B3 Burgess completed a two-phase, £1.6 million regeneration of the single-storey red brick pavilion in 2003.

The latest project will double the café’s capacity, expand the gift shop and create a new flexible community arts space.

New external signage, landscaping, walkways and environmental improvements will also be required.

Originally known as Oriel 31, the gallery was later renamed Oriel Davies Gallery in memory of the art collectors Gwendoline and Margaret Davies who built the pavilion.

The winner of the £14,000 contract will develop the scheme up to RIBA Stage 2 and deliver a cost estimate.

The deadline for submitting tenders is 5pm on 23 December. Interviews will be held in Newtown in early January.
