Project Description

The gallery underwent significant changes prior to its reopening in 1999. The architects Williams Boag were commissioned to design a state of the art storage facility to house the gallery’s collection, a secure loading area, a multi-purpose room, a café, a shop and to upgrade the existing exhibition spaces and offices while maintaining the integrity of the original design. The extensions mesh seamlessly with the original modernist building.

Don Kerr provided detailed structural design consultancy to this project working closely with the design architects to ensure that the integrity of the existing building was uncompromised.
