Sandy Wilson, with Long & Kentish, has been appointed to design the extension to Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, West Sussex, which houses the Sandy Wilson Collection of art. The design will involve replacing a row of 1930s mock-Victorian houses next to the listed Georgian building. The Heritage Lottery Fund awarded £75,000 to the gallery, which will make a further application to the HLF for funds towards the £4 million total cost of the building. Sandy Wilson with Long & Kentish was selected from a shortlist of five.
The Heritage Lottery Fund has given grants totalling £7.3 million to 28 projects in its latest round of awards. This includes £277,500 for the purchase and conservation of the 14th-century monastic Barton Grange Farm at Bradford-on -Avon, and £400,000 for the restoration of seven listed windmills in Kent.
