Photographic Gallery

Nominee
2012-13
Creating a contemporary photographic gallery space with room for a library and photographic archive, in a small village in Petworth, west Sussex. The ground floor needed to be designed for permanent and ongoing exhibitions, whilst upstairs needed to house a very fine collection of 20th century photographs & books from around the world, collected by Paul Arden.rnrnThe interiors needed to be white, light and bright to show off the modern & contemporary photographs exhibited. A long, low shelf was used to sit photographs on, as well as a wall hanging system for temporary exhibitions. Lighting was crucial and handled with extreme care due to wattle & daub interior walls and low, beamed ceilings. Floors were carpeted in light coloured matting to create warmth and calm, whilst the over-all design was a mixture of old and new. A small kitchen leading onto a paved terrace was designed at the rear of the gallery, whilst a bathroom, library, office secondary gallery spaces, completed the first floor layout. rnrnFurniture, kept to a minimum to retain space, was a mix of modern 20th century classics & antique leather chairs. Built-in desks, shelves and cupboards kept the space uncluttered and minimal. Walls were white, accentuating the Tudor architecture, and oak beams were sanded down and oiled.rnrnWhat began as a moldy, dark shop was transformed into a thriving, fun space that was visited by international clients and students alike. The spaces were both comfortable and welcoming, whilst maintaining excitement and intrigue on the eye. rn
