This project acts as the visitor centre for Mackintosh's 78 Derngate next door. After the Bassett-Lowkes moved out of 78 Derngate in 1926, the building had several occupiers and uses, eventually being leased by the council in 1996, leading to the commencement of restoration work in 2002. At this time, as well as overseeing the restoration work to 78, JM+P were commissioned to work on the two adjacent properties in order to improve visitor facilities. Number 80, a terraced house similar to 78, was gutted to provide a new vertical access. The work here includes a lift and new staircase which wraps around a four storey high glass cabinet that displays a number of exhibits relating to C R Mackintosh and the Bassett-Lowkes. No 82 is a large corner house and accommodates the entrance to all 3 properties, together with a shop, gallery and café/restaurant. A large glazed extension has been added to the rear.
