The AJ can exclusively reveal the first images of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris' (AHMM's) plans for the new Saatchi Gallery in west London. The practice was commissioned by Charles Saatchi himself to work alongside Paul Davis and Partners, the office working on the wider masterplan of the Duke of York's barracks in Chelsea, which will house the gallery. The scheme will see the interiors of the Grade II*-listed building pared back to the historic fabric and then concealed behind new walls, that will give the gallery 'simplicity'. AHMM maintains that the aim of the scheme is in large part to make as simple a space as possible, to create room for the extraordinary collection to breathe. This is also exemplified in the lift shafts, which are made of simple exposed concrete. The lighting, always key in gallery spaces, will also follow this philosophy through the use of Barasole skins.
