City Museum & Mappin Art Gallery, Weston Park

Sheffield, South Yorkshire

The practice was commissioned to carry out a feasibility study and preliminary scheme for the redevelopment of the City Museum and Mappin Art Gallery in Weston Park, Sheffield, for a Stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund bid. The building is listed Grade II* and the brief was to improve access to the building, improve conservation conditions, introduce additional educational facilities and to create a single identity for the museum.

The project involved refurbishment and renewal of the existing building, together with demolition and redevelopment of some of the back of house areas.

This project was successful in obtaining agreement from the Heritage Lottery Fund £10,9 million of the £14,9 million total project costs.
