The new 8,000 sq ft gallery provides high quality exhibition space for the display of fine and decorative arts from the historic Portland Collection. The gallery is housed within the walls of the Tan Gallop, a structure previously used for training race horses. Externally, the walls are exposed giving crisp detail in handmade brick, which contrast and complement the rougher stone of the old walls. Protruding barrel-vaulted roofs provide a dynamic roofline, referencing the silhouette of the Abbey and hinting at the drama within.
All the spaces look fantastic, both inside and outside, and I would really like to thank the team for the amazing hard work and commitment they have shown to realising a truly memorable project.
