Dunfermine gallery and library space previewed ahead of Spring opening
December 9 2016Carnegie Library and Galleries building has been unwrapped ahead of its official opening in the spring, giving the first indication of how the dramatic cultural building marries with the world’s first Carnegie Library.
Designed by Richard Murphy Architects and and delivered by BAM Construction on behalf of Fife Council the build is currently undergoing an internal fit-out ahead of its 2017 unveil.
In a statement Fife Cultural Trust, operator of the new ceentre, said: “The new building will supersede two small and inadequately accessible museum premises, Dunfermline Museum and Pittencrie House Museum, and serve as a gateway to the town’s illustrious past, opening up a new public space between the historic buildings of the Heritage Quarter.”
Located in the heart of the ancient Royal capital’s Heritage Quarter the £12.4m complex will host a museum, three temporary exhibition galleries, café, children’s library and a local history, study and archives space geared toward drawing tourists to the area.
