Pallant House Gallery awarded grant for renovation
6th Nov 2018
Pallant House Gallery has been awarded £300,000 funding by the Arts Council to start phase one of an ambitious new capital renovation project.
The Coach House was originally connected to the historic Pallant House and in 2017 it was purchased by the Gallery, reuniting the two buildings. Phase One has been funded by the Arts Council’s Capital: Small Grants programme and will focus on renovating the public facilities on the ground floor of the Gallery, before moving on to Phase Two, which will look at developing the Coach House.
Phase One will feature a variety of developments, including a refit of the studio, installation of energy saving LED lighting and new sculpture plinths in the courtyard garden.
The work will also see the installation of improved signage and better access to the Gallery’s café. Once completed, they will look to embark on Phase Two of the capital project, which will include a new gallery, a Collections Centre for open-access art storage and conservation, an expanded Library and Archive, meetings rooms and administration suite.
