Description: This project consists of the refurbishment and conservation and extensions of the existing Evan’s Home for the new Butler Gallery. The eagerly awaited finished building will house a large contemporary gallery for major temporary exhibitions, the Butler permanent collection, the Tony O’Malley collection, a media gallery and an education and learning centre. In addition to the refurbishment of the historic building itself, the development delivers a significant new area of public open spaces which will include a Children’s Garden, an Archaeological Garden, a Sculpture Garden and a new pedestrian connection from John Street through the site to John’s Quay. There will also be a café which will include an outdoor seating area with views of the neighbouring St. John’s Priory. This world, a mixture of old and new, history and heritage, inside and outside will provide an engaging, enjoyable and accessible visitor experience for locals and tourists alike. Brendan Merry & Partners are delighted to be part of a very experienced and familiar design team in McCullough Mulvin Architects and O’Connor Sutton Cronin Structural and Civil Engineers. We look forward to working with Kilkenny County Council and Mythen Construction to deliver a first-class conservation project.
