Firm wins £1.5m contract for gallery

Kettering-based GSSArchitecture has won the contract to design a new art gallery at the Richard Attenborough centre in Leicester.

The £1.5m scheme will increase the size of the arts buildings on the site by 50 per cent, creating a series of interlinked spaces which will be open to the public.

It is expected to open in 2015. A fundraising appeal has started to help with the costs.
