RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The original Mostyn Art Gallery has an elegant brick and stone façade with a delightful linked steel and glass canopy. The extended and refurbished gallery has more than doubled the size of the original, having incorporated a former retail area at street level, which has increased visibility for the new gallery space.

The architects have cleverly arranged three new gallery spaces; one double-height features a series of angled rooflights, and the quality of light playing on the walls both softens and draws out the texture of the shuttering. This is a confident and refreshing addition to the art scene of Wales that complements the art it houses.
