The new Design Museum in Kensington


The Design Museum opened in its new home on Kensington High Street on November 24, with triple the space of its previous site. 

The new building, designed by John Pawson, includes two major temporary gallery spaces, a free permanent collection display, a restaurant overlooking Holland Park, an auditorium, studios, library, archive and new learning facilities.

The museum has spans 10,000sqm, about triple the size of its previous space at Shad Thames, south-east London. The project is the culmination of a five-year construction process following an investment of £83m.

The project has seen some of the world’s leading designers, manufacturers and patrons come together to create a new global hub for contemporary design.
