The Design Museum London
Venue: The Design Museum -224-238 Kensington High Street London, W8 6AG.
Following a long search for larger premises to expand its activities, in 2008 the Design Museum selected the former 1960s building in Kensington High Street, West London, as its new home. This unique landmark from the 1960s, a Grade II* listed building that had stood vacant for over a decade, will be transformed by a design team led by John Pawson who will make the building fit for a 21st century museum, whilst at the same time retaining its unique spatial quality. The Design Museum worked with John Pawson on the interior fit out of its building. OMA were responsible for the overall master plan and in conjunction with Allies and Morrison for the refurbishment of the exterior of the museum.The Design Museum London is one of the world’s leading museums devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design.
