Start: July 2002

Completion: October 2002

Client: The Arts Institute at Bournemouth

The brief required a new entrance foyer for the Arts Institute leading to both the main reception and the art gallery.

The art gallery required complete refurbishment with a 50% increase in hanging space, new lighting and a real connection to the circulation spaces which surround it.

The project also encompassed the creation of a new lecture theatre with fully automatic fold away rostra seating.

The new designs were required to sit comfortably within the existing building whilst expressing the contemporary image of the Institute as a centre of excellence for the applied arts.
