The National has recently undergone a major redevelopment providing quality new spaces for the world's most important collection of Scottish art.

Designed by Hoskins Architects, the new galleries have doubled the physical exhibition space, transforming the visitor experience and improving accessibility. A series of large windows run the length of the gardens-level façade, filling the new galleries with light and offering spectacular views over the city.

The construction of the new galleries was one of the most complex engineering projects undertaken in a heritage building in Scotland - working within the constraints of a World Heritage site, above railway tunnels and excavating beneath a Category-A Listed building.
