Victoria & Albert Museum

A précis of our more recent schemes includes:

Videogames £1.2m
Fully integrated M&E designs for the new showcase, which is to be housed in the V&A’s 900m2 temporary exhibition gallery.

British Galleries & Entrance Steps Project £8m
The refurbishment of the British Galleries was one of the largest projects undertaken by the V&A. Fifteen galleries in an area of about 48,438 ft2 house approximately 3000
exceptional pieces of decorative and fine art. Room 52 of the British Galleries contains the ornate panelling from the Music Room and the doorways from the Great Room of Norfolk House. This required a particularly sensitive approach, and our engineers responded with detailed designs routing the services and integrating the finishes for complete concealment.

Members’ Lounge & National Art Library Offices £1.7m
We were appointed to undertake two schemes as part of the V&A’s ongoing restoration and regeneration scheme called FuturePlan. Our responsibilities included the design of a prestigious new Members’ Lounge, comprising an informal private lounge and dining space for the museum’s membership. The new members room occupies space previously given to staff offices, which we relocated to adjacent space. We have also been appointed to undertake various other projects as part of an ongoing framework arrangement.

MUSEUMS, GALLERIES & HERITAGE

Working to the exact demands of the conservation sector brings with it a unique set of challenges. We understand the need to work closely with conservation specialists and other stakeholders to optimise the balance between modernisation and retention.

Our wealth of experience and understanding of the complex issues involved delivering historic buildings enables us to fully appreciate that incorporating modern services can only be successfully achieved by treating historic buildings with the utmost respect. To achieve a great design, clients need a partner who understands the challenges and parallel objectives of these projects. It is only after an intensive period of investigation and research that we will sit down to prepare our collaboratively thought out designs.
