GSSArchitecture have been appointed by Northampton Borough Council as Architects, Lead Consultants and Principal Designers to lead a significant expansion and extension to Northampton Museum and Art Gallery.
The proposals are part of the GSS Cultural Quarter masterplan and add a major extension to create a new shoe gallery to showcase the museum’s world renowned collection. In addition, a temporary exhibition gallery, events space, café and link space are to be created.
The project will transform the role of the museum in the area by providing an enriched and improved experience and will contribute to the regeneration of Northampton Town Centre, enhancing the entertainment, learning and leisure aspects of the community.
GSS have worked collaboratively to respect and incorporate the existing architecture. The project is the latest in the practice’s growing portfolio of regional and national museums, galleries and exhibition spaces.
