Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft by Adam Richards Architects

Situated in a village in the Sussex South Downs, the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft holds an important collection of work by the artists and craftspeople who made Ditchling a creative hub in the 20th century.

The major refurbishment project includes a new entrance & shop for the museum, designed by London-based architectural firm Adam Richards Architects, the new space allowing the collections to be set against the backdrop of where they were created.

The principal new building on the site is constructed using engineered timber and clad with black zinc, providing a new gallery and collection store.

Inspiration from architect:

The culmination of our designs for the museum is a gallery to exhibit the Stanhope Press. Used to disseminate the ideas of Gill & his followers, this still-working printing press is placed at the end of a chapel-like space, surrounded by displays of works-on-paper.
