Project: The Gardener's Workshop

The Hepworth Wakefield is creating an inspiring riverside garden by a leading international designer which will provide a new free-to-enter public space and visitor attraction for the residents of Wakefield and visitors to the gallery.

The Hepworth Wakefield seeks an architect to develop a multi-functional activity space and garden workshop/storage area to act as a base for the Cultural Gardener. The Cultural Gardener will be responsible for the maintenance of the garden alongside engagement activities, and this post will be appointed later this year.   

The design must complement and work with both the David Chipperfield-designed gallery and the Tom Stuart-Smith-designed garden, and we would be willing to explore pre-fabricated and semi-permanent structures.
