Part of the Concrete Elegance series produced by The Building Centre and The Concrete Centre.

Chichester’s new Museum is an elegant new insertion into an historic city. The unique aspect of the Museum is centred around the substantial archaeological remains of the Roman Baths. The building spans these remains which have been incorporated in situ into the main entrance hall. The facade has been clad in pale precast concrete panels whilst the interior surfaces of the museum are made in fair faced concrete. Silver granite aggregates were used with silver grey granite fines, the surfaces of which were brushed to achieve a subtle sparkle.
