The project involved restoration works to the world-renowned 1960s Hayward Gallery. 

The art gallery reopened at the end of January with the first major UK retrospective of the acclaimed German photographer Andreas Gursky.

The building’s 66 iconic pyramid roof lights have undergone an adaptive redesign, letting natural light into the upper floors of the gallery for the first time. Inside, a new climate control system has been installed along with essential building services and digital infrastructure. The terrazzo floors and the sculpture terraces have also been replaced.

These refurbishment works are part of a wider scheme designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley, which include the pedestrianisation of the route to the river between Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery, extension of the Queen Elizabeth Hall roof gardens, the creation of new performance spaces and the improvement of connections between Southbank Centre and the surrounding area.
