Project Information

 

LJJ was responsible for the supply, installation and commissioning of the building services to the newly refurbished Design Museum formally known as the “Commonwealth Institute”.

One of the many challenges on this project was to sympathetically install the services around the distinctive hyperbolic paraboloid roof, many of which were surface mounted.

The museum is the world’s leading museum of contemporary design and architecture and to enhance the displays a bespoke lighting scheme was developed with several light fittings made to measure to fit the building’s unique shape.

The building has 10,000 square metres of space and as well as the exhibition areas it has two shops, a café, restaurant, members’ lounge, library, designers in residence studio and an auditorium with seating capacity of 202 persons.
