The Design Museum

When the Design Museum acquired the former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington as a new site for its collections, the trustees put in place a comprehensive redevelopment programme to convert the building into a leading museum with gallery space equal to the quality of its collections.

English Heritage regard it as the second most important modern building in London, after the Royal Festival Hall, hence it’s Grade II* listing; however, even though it only dates back to 1962, it required significant work to make it fit for purpose.

Arc M&E were engaged to extend and renew the building’s services; a specialist LED Lutron lighting system was installed throughout, and has been set up zonally to meet the differing conditions across the building, including galleries, auditoria, restaurant, café and administration offices.

The Design Museum opened to critical acclaim in November 2016 with the updated building drawing as much praise as the exhibits.
