Gallery for the Jerwood Foundation on the seafront at Hastings
The gallery forms part of a wider masterplan for a new public space on a former coach park alongside a working fishing beach and between Hasting's tall black net shops and it's fairground rides and penny arcades.
The relatively inward-looking ground floor, which contains the reception, shop and a large, sub-dividable space that hosts recent work is arranged around a small internal courtyard. A sequence of seven collection galleries, that have views north or east to the Old Town, or into the courtyard, begins on the ground floor and continues onto the first floor.
This second story, which is set to the south of the site, allowing the net shops to be glimpsed over the single-storey entrance and temporary gallery wing, also contains the gallery's cafe. Facing the public space, the glazing of the cafe window slides back fully to form a covered balcony.
