The refurbished Courtauld Gallery provides a transformed home for one of the UK's greatest art collections, making the historic space more accessible than ever.
Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects Witherford Watson Mann, with gallery design by Nissen Richards Studio, the redevelopment has opened up the building conceived by Sir William Chambers in the 1770s to create an inspiring setting for the 21st century.
Following the most significant modernisation project in the gallery's history, visitors are now able to enjoy the collection's Masterpieces across refurbished galleries alongside new spaces for temporary exhibitions. Improvements also include step-free entrance access, new display cabinets, widened doors and standardised floor levels between rooms. A new visitor welcome area has also been created on the ground floor.
Teaching and research facilities in the gallery have also been enhanced with new collection study spaces as well as the complete refurbishment of the suite of teaching and research facilities within The Courtauld's world-leading Department of Conservation.
The project was supported by £11m from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
