manchester museum

refurbishment of the grade two star listed museum and addition of a new entrance gallery, glazed link bridge, lift and heating / electrical systems.

the approach was adopted of careful restoration of existing structure, with new additions to the building being detailed in a crisp, contemporary and respectful manner.

particular attention was paid to the re-display of exhibits, integrating new and more sympathetic lighting systems into the victorian galleries and upgrading protection against uv light and insect degradation of exhibits.

jacquie milham was site architect for phase 1 works whilst at ian simpson architects.
