​The Collection, Lincoln

The project involved masterplanning the Flaxengate area in Lincoln’s historic centre and the design of a new museum to house a substantial collection of archaeological artefacts.

Invited Culture and Leisure

Panter Hudspith Architects were selected as winners of the competition and worked closely with English Heritage and CABE during the design development process.

The new museum creates connections through the site and improves links with the existing Usher Gallery which sits adjacent to the building. The forms of the building fracture as they follow the contours up the hill, towards the Cathedral, opening up routes and views through the site.

The external courtyard is designed to allow activities within the museum to spill out in summer months, whilst also creating a new public space for Lincoln.
