Textile Conservation Centre, Winchester

Completion Date 1999

Contract Value £2.2m

Client University of Southampton

Located within a Conservation Area, the 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. Winner of an RIBA Award in 2000.
