The Turner Contemporary Gallery is to date Durtnell’s largest single contract. The Gallery is composed of six identical sections with mono-pitched roofs to provide north light into all the upper level galleries. The cladding material is white opaque glass which was chosen because its surface reacts well to changing light conditions and it can withstand the harshness of the marine environment particularly in the winter months.
In addition to the gallery space there is a shop and a café with panoramic views of the town and the bay along with offices and meeting spaces for the Turner Contemporary. A cantilevered balcony over the ground floor gallery allows visitors to enjoy spectacular views out to sea.
