Tate Britain

Tate Britain's new staircase and gallery space

I popped into Tate Britain for my final meeting with Frances Lord my Hothouse mentor and although I was aware this work had been taking place I was mesmerised to stumble across the new central staircase, leading down into several new gallery rooms the Cafe and education rooms. Designed by Caruso St John this renovation has created a real visual impact as you approach this central space.

Downstairs takes you to the Cafe and restaurant as well as an archive room and gallery spaces which were previously closed to the public. There is an allocated education room. 
The entire space has a similar feel to a crypt but is light and airy linked with a series of curved arches leading you in and around the space.
