Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh

Three gallery spaces, assembled one above another but each offset, allowing them to be lit naturally from above. 

Responding to the building’s significant architectural legacy, the proposals re-visit and interpret Richard Murphy Architects’ architectural conception that the new intervention should be distinct from its enclosing shell.

The uppermost gallery sits above the line of the top of the existing gallery wall and presents itself as a rooftop object visible within the Waverley Valley. Its outer surface is a perforated metal with a lustre similar to plumage.
