Bristol Museum and Art Gallery

Improvements to public access to Bristol’s grade 2* listed Museum and Art Gallery included the provision of a bespoke passenger lift designed to carry two wheelchairs at a time, new stairs and the enclosure of the existing porte-cochère with planar glass screens to create a new entrance foyer.

The new lift and stairs link the new foyer at street level with the existing Winterstoke Hall and the Museum’s reception facility. The works included new external pavings, internal finishes, lighting and intruder alarms. DKA provided a full architectural service as lead consultant liaising with English Heritage and Bristol City Council’s Physical Access Chain Group together with preparation of information for public exhibitions and consultations.
