The British Golf Museum and Café

Richard Murphy Architects Ltd

Opened in 1990, this museum in St Andrews attracts more than 60,000 visitors annually but lacked space for visitors to enjoy refreshments. The existing building was single storey and mostly sunk into the ground. The reorganisation places the café on the new first floor but changed the orientation by 90 degrees so most seats now look towards the Old Course.

The building’s narrow edge faces the town and its long edge faces the links, maximising views. The entrance facade has a more commanding presence, while the ground floor has been remodelled to give the 16,000 items on display a more contemporary setting.
