Pringle Richards Sharratt wins £8.6m Ipswich museum contest

Architects'Journal, Kate Youde, 20 April 2020

Kate Youde of Architects' Journal comments that Pringle Richards Sharratt have won the Ipswich museum contest against 10 other shortlisted companies; PRS will lead the £8.6 million overhaul of the Grade II* listed Ipswich Museum, home to the Ipswich Hoard of six Iron Age gold torcs, examining the culture, history and natural heritage of Ipswich and Suffolk. The renovation work, planned to be completed by the end of 2024, will ‘reveal, restore and reinstate’ features of the original late-19th century museum buildings, which are next to Ipswich Art Gallery. The project will also refurbish existing spaces and create a learning centre, special exhibitions area, café and shop.
