The Portland Collection, Welbeck Gallery

The project comprises the new gallery building for the Harley Foundation in which to display a broad collection of historic items owned by the Cavendish family. The new building provides gallery rooms with vaulted ceilings and a two-storey back of house area for plant and office use. The building is constructed within the old Tan Gallop, a walled structure built in the 19th Century as a place to exercise horses. There is a single-storey, glazed, entrance pavilion with a basement adjacent to the Tan Gallop building.

Project awards include: American Architecture Prize 2016,

We really enjoyed working with Mike (Director at SD Structures) on the RIBA award winning project for the Portland Collection, Welbeck. He is a technically innovative and artistically creative engineer who understands the exciting synergies between architecture and structural engineering. He always works collaboratively with us to create the best possible space in imaginative and economic ways.
