Client: Lady Bessborough
Munkenbeck+Marshall project, Stephen Marshall Partner in charge
Commissioned when Madeleine Ponsonby, Countess of Bessborough decided to move her London Gallery to her family home, this sculpture gallery links the main house and the orangery along an existing garden wall. It was conceived as a seamless connection not only between these two buildings but also between inside and out, allowing a clear dialogue between garden sculpture and gallery sculpture.
The project was awarded the RIBA Stephen Lawrence Award in 1999 as well as AIA, Civic Trust, RFAC building of the year and Aluminium Commendations. Click here to visit The New Art Centre Roche Court website.
