Carmody Groarke Greenlit for Expansion of Historic Dorset County Museum in Dorchester

The Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, England has received full planning approval for a 2,500-square-meter renovation and expansion project led by London-based architects Carmody Groarke. The project will consist of a sensitive refurbishing of the historic museum as well as contemporary architectural interventions that will create four new stories of naturally-lit galleries and an improved circulation flow throughout the building.

A central staircase will provide access to the galleries and archive. Image Courtesy of Carmody GroarkeRenderings from an earlier iteration of the design.
