Work in progress shots of Design Museum’s new home’s interiors

The Design Museum’s new Kensington home sees its interior fit-out begin today, with Willmott Dixon Interiors delivering John Pawson’s designs. The new site will include two temporary exhibition spaces, a permanent collection display, learning spaces, design workshops, a library, an auditorium, a museum shop, a café and a restaurant. Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic says: “This is a truly exciting moment, as we take possession of this remarkable building and see it transformed into a museum for the twenty-first century. A huge amount of hard work has gone in to getting the museum to this stage and we are extremely grateful to all of our funders and supporters for their generosity.”

The new museum will open in late 2016, with the current Shad Thames site remaining open until June 2016.
