We are very proud to have won the design competition for the Oxmarket Gallery. The Oxmarket Gallery is already a unique space and offers local, regional and nationally acclaimed artists the opportunity to exhibit their art within the historic centre of Chichester. Being a truly free access gallery, it provides a vital point of public access to enjoy and unlock 'art'. The plans centre of the further enhancement of accessibility and the experience both in terms of the gallery and the enjoyment of one of Chichester's earliest surviving church buildings. Carrying through the theme of accessibility, what set our scheme apart was the desire to tackle the first impressions and street impact of the gallery, which currently fall short of the wonders revealed once inside the venue.
