Edinburgh-based Malcolm Fraser Architects has been appointed to revamp the Scottish National Gallery
The practice beat Gareth Hoskins, Sutherland Hussey and Reiach & Hall to win the high-profile feasibility study job, reported Scotland on Sunday.
The project will focus on the neoclassical building’s basement which currently houses a collection of Scottish artworks.
Opened in 1859, the William Henry Playfair-designed museum benefited from a new underground link connecting it with the Royal Scottish Academy constructed eight years ago.
Entrances to the landmark building on The Mound in Edinburgh could also be improved under the project.
