Jamie Fobert's Tate St Ives extension lands funding boost

  • Comment

The project to extend Tate St Ives has received a £2.8 million boost

The Cornwall scheme, won by Jamie Fobert Architects more than a year ago, was allocated the funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

It brings the project closer to achieving a start on site this autumn, meaning it could be finished by 2015.

The extension will allow Tate St Ives to offer year-round displays of the St Ives Modernists. A collection care suite with loading and art handling facilities will mean the gallery can remain open for an extra six weeks each year.

The project will also create a two-storey learning suite in the heart of the building; and improve reception and visitor services.

Mark Osterfield, executive director of Tate St Ives, said: ‘Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund this fantastic project is significantly closer to being realised.’  

The next milestone will be receiving financial support from the Arts Council England.

If this is successful, Tate St Ives will concentrate on completing the funding package through private donations.
