Scottish National Galleries wins HLF support
We are pleased to announce another successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid. The £15.3m redevelopment project for National Galleries Scotland has received a £4.94m Stage 1 HLF grant and is now proceeding towards a planning application. Hoskins Architects were appointed by National Galleries Scotland in 2014, via a competitive tender process, to be Architects for the new Scottish Collection Gallery on The Mound, Edinburgh. The project involves extensive reworking of the 1978 PSA designed Scottish Collection gallery, as well as linking to the 2004, John Miller and Partners, Weston link and creating a new rationalised circulation strategy. The project will also provide a new world class gallery space, below the Grade A listed, Playfair designed National Gallery building, to display the large collection of Scottish Works in the Scottish National Collection. The design includes forming a new façade onto Princes Street Gardens and proposes extensive landscaping to the gardens to enhance accessibility throughout the complex. The project will complete in 2018.
