MK Gallery

MK Gallery is a leading contemporary art gallery that commissions and showcases work from UK and international artists and operates a highly successful education and events programme. The 6a refurbishment and extension will allow an increasingly ambitious and diverse cultural programme. 

 

The new building includes additional gallery spaces, a café, education facilities and a multi purpose auditorium suitable for for performances, talks and film screenings.

 

Momentum worked closely with 6a and the design team to  develop refined structural designs that enhance the architectural aesthetic, whilst being buildable and cost effective.

 

Some of the challenges included suspending the auditorium over large gallery spaces, helical stair design and sympathetic alterations to the existing structure.

 

We were also involved with the MK City Club development to enhance the surrounding public realm with landscaping and sculptures.
