The client's brief was for the conversion of the existing ground floor and basement shop premises into a modern gallery for the display of a wide range of art and artefacts from water colour, oil panitings and collages to sculptures and kinetic art.
The key to creating the necessary flexibility was the creation of very simple open spaces and a lighting system, which provided indirect background lighting as well as a range of downlighting options that could be combined or used singly.
Seperate trade and specialist contractors were co-ordinated by the Architect. The mechanical and electrical services contractors collaborated with the Architect in the detailed design of their installations.
The opening exhibition showed a wide variety of work by friends of the Architect who were associated with the School of Architecture at the Regent Street Polytechnic and Corsham Court in Wiltshire, which at that time was an Art College run by the Ellis Family.
