Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery

TTCF’s first multi-year grant involved a total sum of $3 million for the redevelopment of West Auckland’s Lopdell Precinct, including the restoration of the iconic Lopdell House  in Titirangi and the construction of a new adjacent art gallery.  The new regional gallery has been built to nationally accepted museum and art gallery standards, providing twice the present exhibition space, new teaching areas, delivery workshop, preparation and storage spaces, and new electrical and air-conditioning services.  Other significant funders of this $20 million major project were Auckland Council, the Lottery Grants Board and Foundation North.
