This intelligent project has recovered a lost connection between the city and an 18th century pleasure garden.

Glimpsed from a distance through the trees, there is an unexpected ethereal quality to the extension to the museum. The use of materials and layering to the façade creates a sophisticated play of shadows, light and reflection – beautiful and unique, creating a building of true character that is underpinned by careful historical research and analysis and very much of its site.
