Entrance Gates: Kelvingrove Art Gallery

Entrance Gates: Kelvingrove Art Gallery
Security gates for the new main entrance to the refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum in Glasgow.    

A public art commission, the design demanded a bold approach to complement the architecture and the very imposing red brick and sandstone.   The confined space where the gates are situated led to an intermediate hinge being introduced which also enabled the gates be partially closed, leaving one central entry point for private functions.   

The gates were designed after consultation with the architect and made locally.
