Inverness Museum & Art Gallery


The Highland Council






Planning Submitted

Working with The Highland Council, Threesixty Architecture have developed a subtle and cost-effective strategy to update the appearance of The Inverness Museum and Art Gallery (IMAG). Located at Bridge Street in Inverness the building is part of a 1970’s concrete megastructure which sits uncomfortably amongst the backdrop of Inverness Castle and the Town House.

The strategy identifies a long term ambition to completely redevelop the site in a more sympathetic manner however current budget constraints do not allow for this. It is proposed to improve the appearance of the building until a more permanent solution can be achieved.

The strategy is to create a subtle and effective lighting strategy that takes advantage of the uniformity of the existing facade. This lighting strategy will be supplemented by an improved wayfinding design. This will see much needed improvement works to existing routes whilst better guiding the public around the building to key areas within the city.
