A grade two-listed, 19th century Methodist chapel has been subtly transformed into a major new arts venue. Working with the Zabludowicz Arts Trust’s brief to minimize the impact on the building’s decaying aesthetic, AHMM have delivered a simple refurbishment that skilfully retains the ‘found’ nature of each space within the chapel. The original period features have been retained and are an integral part of the three main double-height spaces within the building. The result is a gallery that will present three major site-specific exhibitions per year for a prolific global art collector. The gallery is not a traditional art exhibition space, but a ‘raw’ addition to the often sterile spaces of private collections. Most exhibitions will be commissioned exclusively for display within the gallery thus making the building a central theme in the commissioned works.
