The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has reopened following a multi-million pound redevelopment to conserve the 1911 Grade II* Listed building and create a range of new public spaces.

The £8.4m project includes the complete restoration of the original gallery and improvements to facilities and access. The 1974 gallery extension has been redesigned with a extension linking the historic buildings. An entrance and shop have been added at street level and a new passenger lift allows full physical access to all exhibitions and collection galleries, all education and study facilities as well as other areas.

Other features include a new lecture space and community room, a library and archive devoted to visitor research, a café and new technical areas and administrative offices.

The redevelopment and restoration project has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales, Swansea Council, the Welsh Government and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Funding was also secured through the Building Enhancement Programme grant scheme run by Swansea Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The architects for the project were Powell Dobson Architects.
