Textile Conservation Centre, Winchester
Completion Date 1999
Contract Value £2.2m
Client University of Southampton
Located within a Conservation Area, the new Textile Conservation Centre formed part of a wider campus development for the Winchester School of Art. Within this leading international research centre, the environmentally-controlled, double height laboratories were designed to benefit from UV filtered north light. A glass wall extends along the first floor as a gallery, enabling students and visitors to view the conservation process without infringing on the conservators’ work. Recipient of an RIBA Award in 2000.
