Carmody Groarke lands Carlisle museum commission

The facade of the Clocktower along Castle Street

Practice set to create blueprint for Tullie House expansion

Carmody Groarke has been appointed to work up proposals for the refurbishment and expansion of Carlisle’s Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery as part of a project to mark its 125th anniversary.

The practice, which is BD’s current architect of the year, will create a masterlan for the future of the Carlisle centre, which includes a grade I-listed Jacobean house but also features a more modern art gallery.

Supported by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, the project will see Carmody Groarke work as part of a team with the museum operators and business planners, Counterculture.
