We carefully consider each institution’s unique context and purpose when designing museums. We collaborate closely with curators, historians, and stakeholders to understand the collection, exhibition requirements, and the narratives to be conveyed. Our designs embrace a holistic approach, creating robust and beautiful architecture which acts as a set-piece for storytelling, providing flexibility for exhibition teams, and focusing on spatial flows to create a seamless and immersive visitor experience.
Striking a balance between showcasing art/artefacts, creating immersive experiences, and preserving cultural heritage makes museum design complex. We approach museum design with a deep appreciation for the power of architecture to enhance the visitor’s engagement with art, history, and culture. We aim to create museum spaces that not only house and display precious collections but also become platforms for education, inspiration, and storytelling.
We bring a profound appreciation for the transformative power of architecture to every museum project. In 2018, we created new exhibitions and visitor facilities for the Royal Air Force Museum, reconnecting it with its local community and the wider public. We were shortlisted in an invited competition to redesign the entrance spaces and East Hall gallery of the Science Museum in 2020, but the project was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since 2021, we have worked at the British Museum on a series of refurbishment projects to their galleries, collection storage areas, and preservation of external fabric.
