Adam Richards Architects‘ Ditchling Museum renovation is shaped like a small, dark chapel. The building’s form was inspired by the rural buildings that surround it – however it stands out with its delicate design and carefully selected material palette.
Constructed using engineered timber and clad with black zinc, the shelter now houses a new gallery with a ‘Wunderkammer‘ (cabinet of curiosities) containing the museum’s founding objects. The unique antique collection features a working Stanhope Press (1842) as one of its main attractions.
