A fly-through video gives an idea of what form new gallery spaces will take, both inside and out, as part of the £16.8m Celebrating Scotland’s Art project to triple floor space at the Edinburgh cultural attraction from 440sq/m to 1,320sq/m.
In a statement the architects wrote: “There will be a suite of new rooms which, for the first time, will be directly accessible from East Princes St Gardens. These will be enhanced by natural light, and will also offer stunning views into the Gardens and the city beyond. Sympathetic landscaping will integrate the Scottish National Gallery with the Gardens, significantly enhancing this important part of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. The terrace outside will be substantially expanded and a new pathway created.”
Construction work will get underway next spring and will open to the public in early 2019.
