The new National Gallery Singapore is set to open its doors on 24 November.

The museum is being designed by Studio Milou Singapore, in partnership with CPG Consultants (Singapore) and will occupy the City Hall and the former Supreme Court in the city.

The architects say they have aimed to integrate two interior spaces into one new arts institution, while maintaining a respect for the original architecture.

They say: “New walkways supported by white tree-like branches will transform the way visitors move through the galleries, introducing contemporary structures without detracting from the fabric of the original architecture.

“The rooftop of the former Supreme Court building will also now be accessible, revealing a view across the original rotunda domes.Outside, a canopy of 15,000 golden aluminum panels gently floats between the two neoclassical structures, joining the buildings and providing a dappled sunlit central courtyard.”
