Our museum design permits museums, foundations and galleries to communicate with their audience and provide a creative, safe and animated context.

Through connecting numerous layers of interpretation and feeling to the visitor, museum objects awaken and stories can be considered and enjoyed.

Our museum designers take on each element of a museum design project, from the feasibility, design concept, supervision of manufacture, to the final stage of completion, ensuring very high levels of quality and detail.

With clear core messages and individual interpretation we turn catalysts of ideas into highly successful museum design projects.
This approach has enabled us to maintain our 100% HLF (Heritage Lottery Funding) application record.

All our museum designs utilise environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and technologies to make sure we meet the needs of today whilst looking after tomorrow.

Excellence in museum design, client satisfaction and audience engagement is assured.
