To provide more context, the Gallery engaged Irving Smith Architects (ISA) to create a concept design for the new building and we would like to share these with you. Please click on the link below:
This concept design shows how this project will create an architectural landmark that delivers significant cultural, environmental, social and economic benefits to the South Canterbury Region. The design responds to the unique project site and preserves the existing trees and sight lines. Its compact footprint and refined profile also complements and preserves the dignity of the existing Heritage House Gallery, and together both buildings will create spaces to bring people together and foster a sense of community, imagination and openness.
