The Henry Moore Foundation invites architects to submit expressions of interest for the redevelopment of the Sheep Field Barn Gallery at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens, Perry Green, Hertfordshire SG10 6EE, to introduce learning and engagement facilities to the gallery and improve the existing display space.

The ambition is to develop and add a modest extension to the existing building to provide state-of-the-art facilities to run an extensive engagement programme, ranging from school workshops to academic talks, which would cater for all segments of our audience and provide greater opportunities for audience engagement.

Basic Information

Construction budget estimated at £2.5 million + fitting out + VAT.

At this stage we are inviting expressions of interest from any architectural practice eligible to work in the UK.

Expressions of interest will be selected based on information provided in the pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) form included in this application pack. Selection from PQQ will be made against following criteria

a) Ability to demonstrate experience in the design of this type of building (education/interpretation for cultural and creative spaces);
