V&A / RIBA Study Rooms
Creating a new home for the RIBA collection at the V&A Museum
The Royal Institute of British Architects' project to relocate their drawings and archives collection to the Victoria & Albert Museum has created the world's most comprehensive architectural resource. Located in the Grade II* listed Henry Cole Wing of the Museum, the HLF funded scheme involved the re-organisation of the existing accommodation to create new offices for curators, conservation workshops and archive storage space for both institutions. The public face of the project is the remodelled study rooms that combine new oak -lined insertions and library mezzanine with bespoke designed furniture to create an elegant and calm environment for learning. Mark Wray was the Project Architect at Wright & Wright Architects for the the project.
