The Novium by Keith Williams Architects was constructed over in-situ archaeological remains which now provide a stunning entrance feature in the ground floor gallery.
“This is a prominent public building with a complex programme designed to celebrate Roman hypocaust ruins on the site. It has been elegantly delivered and adds considerable value. The exhibitions have a vibrancy which read well within the building and the curators appear well-placed to provide further stimulating exhibitions. It is difficult to achieve any kind of modern architecture in Chichester and the client and architect are to be warmly commended.”
