Cromwell Place, South Kensington is now fully complete and open to the public. Comprising five Grade II Listed Victorian terraces, the existing buildings have been sensitively refurbished and transformed into interconnected, contemporary gallery space.
A key area of our work focused on improving accessibility between the listed town houses, which were previously unconnected and inaccessible for visitors with disabilities. Complex structural work was undertaken to clear a number of inaccessible extensions in the courtyard and make way for a new central gallery. The interior spaces, previously in use as offices, were then opened up to form new gallery, office and exhibition space with foot bridges installed to link each of the five existing buildings.
Installed in the central courtyard, a new steel-framed gallery space has been created featuring a sawtooth Northlight and with a two-storey basement for art storage and plant requirements. Stretching the length of the gallery, the sculptural roof form increases natural light levels internally while externally, the structure is clad in blackened stainless steel, creating a visual contrast to its immediate surroundings.For more information on visiting hours and times, visit the Cromwell Place website.
