The design strategy for the redevelopment of the Grade 2 Listed Fusilier Museum in Bury, Lancashire resolves the circulation deficiencies up to and within the first floor (over 4 half levels), providing a clear circulation strategy for the entire museum and ensuring access for all throughout, whilst minimising impact on the historic fabric. The key to this solution has been the positioning of a new lift located within the shaft of the existing chimney in the heart of the museum.
New openings and adaptations are clearly distinguishable to provide a commentary on the continuing development of the building. The existing art studios, where the artist L. S. Lowry taught, have been adapted to create an Open Store, Archive and Conference facility.
