De Matos Ryan wins Carmarthen gallery contest

  • Comment

De Matos Ryan Architects has won the competition to redevelop and extend Oriel Myrddin in Carmarthen, Wales

The studio defeated Purcell, Rural Office for Architecture, Acanthus and Featherstone Young to land the prestigious contract.

The project for Oriel Myrddin Trust will overhaul the Grade II-listed art and crafts venue and deliver additional exhibition space, improved access, an outdoor area and a new café.

Named after legendary welsh wizard Merlin, Oriel Myrddin Gallery first opened inside the former Carmarthen School of Art building on Church Lane in 1991.

The Victorian landmark – designed by local architect George Morgan in 1892 – is now at the centre of the city’s emerging King Street cultural quarter.

Rural Office for Architecture – based in nearby Newcastle Emlyn – completed a feasibility study for the redevelopment project two years ago.

Images of De Matos Ryan’s winning scheme have yet to be revealed.
