Permanent gallery for the House of Illustration along with a shop and spaces for education and events

The gallery occupies the ground floor and basement of a small Victorian office building originally built to house the Great Northern Railway’s administrative staff.

The galleries have been constructed as a suite or rooms with new wall and ceiling linings. The rooms are interlinked creating a series of different spaces in a variety of sizes.

The building also includes an education studio, a shop, offices and a flexible gallery and events space.
