Design Security Ltd has been supporting a wider design team lead by Archtype Ltd to help Herefordshire Council with securing funding that will enable the transformation of the Herford Museum and Gallery building.

The financing for £5million was secured from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NHLF). This funding will allow renovation to proceed. 

The plans include eight new galleries and display spaces, a temporary exhibition space, the restoration of the historic Woolhope Club Room and new commercial areas including a retail space, roof-top café and events and education space. A spectacular viewing beacon and roof terrace will be accessible from the fifth-floor courtyard space providing 360 degree views over the city and surrounding Herefordshire landscape.

Chris Aldous, Director of Design Security Ltd says, ‘It is a great achievement for the whole design team and we at Design Security Ltd are proud to have been involved from an early stage so that security as an enabler could be built into the design. We look forward to maintaining our input to such a great project’.
