The Garden Museum

The establishment of The Garden Museum in 1977 rescued the ancient London church of St Mary-at-Lambeth from demolition.

 

In 2008, the Garden Museum commissioned a refurbishment and transformation of the interior of this Grade I listed building to provide provide a sequence of contemporary exhibition spaces, a site for the permanent collection, education facilities, a café and a shop.


The scheme focused on a single-storey, cross- laminated timber structure installed into the nave to provide enclosed ground floor rooms and a new exhibition space at first floor level. The structure was designed to enhance the visitors’ experience of the dramatic space without affecting the fabric of the historic building.
