Just one year after having set up his architectural practice, Craig Downie was commission by Wilfred Cass to create the Cass Sculpture Foundation's Visitors' Gallery in 1994. Downie was to receive a RIBA award for this building - which was also short-listed for a British Construction Industry award.
In 2006, the Cass Sculpture Foundation commissioned Craig Downie to create its Foundation Centre. The centre provides new offices, a library, exhibition space and archives for a unique collection of 21st-century British sculpture. The greys and whites of the building's surfaces refer to the indigenous flint that is so specific to Sussex whilst providing a contrast between inside and out, and the hard and soft expression of the building and the landscape.
