From Shad Thames to Kensington. 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. The transformation was led by John Pawson who designed the museum fit for the 21st century, whilst at the same time retaining its unique spatial quality.
The design is so unique yet simple from the use of the lines on the ceiling as they create beautiful curves and naturally enhancing a feeling of infinity in the whole room. For Architecture and interior lovers, you could easily spend a good few hours in this museum exploring its history as well as the on-going exhibitions.
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.
