National Leather Collection

A design for a new museum in Northampton to house The National Leather Collection, a history of UK Leatherwork through an extraordinary collection of artefacts.

We have developed the scheme, which is currently being funded, in association with Bill Amberg. The building, which is housed in the top two floors of a 1970s office development on Market Square, will include a large changing exhibition space, archive, education suite, library, offices, cafe and shop. It will also house studios for startups as a place for the industry to thrive.
