RIBA SOUTH WEST & WESSEX AWARDS – 2015 - BRUTON Durslade Farm

Thursday, 14th May 2015

Durslade Farm Galleries for Hauser & Wirth Somerset received an RIBA Regional Award at the recent ceremony held in Bath.

From a total of 48 entries Durslade was one of 16 projects shortlisted and the team are delighted to have won the award.

Working in collaboration with Laplace & Co (Paris), the project saw the transformation of a listed C18  model farm into a pioneering world class gallery and multipurpose art centre. The existing historic farm buildings have been repaired and adapted to provide three art galleries, a restaurant, education spaces, a guest house and offices for the client. Two new purpose built galleries have been sensitively inserted alongside the existing to form an intimate landscaped courtyard for displaying sculpture.

Work was completed and open to the public in July 2014.
