St Albans City Museum and Art Gallery

John McAslan + Partners' refurbishment and adaptive reuse of this nationally important historic building includes restoration of the Town Hall's impressive first-floor Assembly Room as a gallery to showcase the rich history of St Albans City. New glazed 'wings" at the first-floor level will allow visitors to circulate around the building and enjoy stunning views of the surrounding townscape and cathedral. A new environmentally-controlled gallery at the lower ground-floor level will house touring exhibitions and contemporary art shows. Alongside the new gallery spaces, the historic courtroom will be refurbished as a creative educational resource and cafe's extra seating area, with visitors able to explore its Victorian cells in the basement below. On the ground floor, visitor information centre, cafe, further exhibition and educational spaces will help transform the building into a major cultural destination for the City.
