Museum and art gallery project to boost Northampton regeneration
Work has started on the expansion and extension of Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, a key addition to Northampton’s expanding cultural quarter.
Located in the centre of the town, the project will add an extension into the former Gaol Block on Angel Street, which was initially part of the museum until being sold off and, until recently, was used as council offices. The reclaimed space will house a shoe gallery to showcase the museum’s collection. The location of the gallery allows it to flow into parts of the vaulted structures which formed the original Gaol, more than doubling the amount of public space.
Appointed by Northampton Borough Council, GSSArchitecture is acting as architects, lead consultants and principal designers for the project working with contractor Wildgoose Construction.
The museum will also extend into the adjacent Guildhall Road Block, a building designed by GSSArchitecture’s founder, John Alfred Gotch in 1937. A courtyard extension, designed using glass and sandstone, will integrate the former museum buildings, the Gaol Block and Guildhall Road Block as well as providing additional gallery space, a café and roof terrace.
