HAT Projects' Jerwood Gallery opens doors

  • Comment

Emerging outfit HAT Projects has taken the wraps off its £4 million Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.

The 1,300m² scheme by the Colchester-based practice is part of a larger redevelopment of the historic Stade area in the coastal resort’s Old Town, and will become the permanent home for the Jerwood Foundation’s collection of 20th- and 21st-century paintings.

The project is being hailed as the latest in the ‘string of pearls’ of prestigious cultural attractions stretching along the South Coast, which includes David Chipperfiled Architects’ Turner Contemporary at Margate, the Folkestone Triennial, the Towner in Eastbourne, De la Warr Pavilion at Bexhill and Pallant House at Chichester.

The building officially opens to the public on Saturday 17 March.

Work starts on HAT Projects’ new Jerwood Gallery

Construction has begun on the new £4million Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, East Sussex by up-and-coming outfit HAT Projects

Funded entirely by the Jerwood Foundation, the scheme will become the permanent home for the Jerwood Collection’s of 20th and 21st century as well as a new regional venue for its visual arts programme. 

The 1,300m² gallery sits within the larger Stade masterplan also developed by the Colchester-based practice which includes the development of a civic space and community facilities designed by Tim Ronalds Architects. 

According to the practice, the gallery’s interior of the building ‘takes inspiration from spaces such as Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice’.
