Carnegie Museum, Melton Mowbray
The museum, located in the old Carnegie Library built in 1905, attracts high numbers of visitors from Leicestershire and across the country. It is set within the heart of Melton’s historic market town and on the edge of a conservation area. The proposal was developed in close consultation with Melton Borough Council’s conservation officer using building materials that fit with the building’s existing historic fabric.
The brief extended the existing accommodation. A new 280 square metres, two-storey extension, gave the museum a new ground floor gallery in which to display its growing collection of rural history material, and first floor education rooms to host workshops, lectures and voluntary work placement opportunities.
