....the thought behind form


David Wright was the Design Team Leader for the refurbishment and extension of Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. This is a regional museum with a collection of international importance, including fine and decorative arts, fashion, world cultures and local history. They are contained within a Grade 2* listed building, part of the Royal Pavilion estate.

The work included the insertion of a modern entrance foyer and shop, provision of a new extension containing object handling, education and curatorial facilities and a new timber-clad teaching pavilion nestling between the mature trees of the Royal Pavilion gardens. Further phases included fully-upgraded collections storage, a Friends’ room, a Local History Study Centre and full restoration of the historically-sensitive fabric as well as insertion of new lifts and building services.
