We recently completed a car park extension scheme for the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich. The grade II* listed art gallery and museum was designed by Norman Foster and is host to regular national and international exhibitions. It is a prominent feature of the parkland landscape at the University of East Anglia.
The Centre struggled to provide enough visitor parking, especially during temporary exhibitions when numbers can increase by over 200 per day. We were asked to study the problem and provide a solution which was sensitive to the setting of the building. It was also a requirement that our proposals get approval from Foster and Partners, who have ongoing input into all aspects relating to the Sainsbury Centre. Read more
