Projects

The Anning Rooms, Natural History Museum

An exclusive Members’ and Patrons’ Room as part of the Natural History Museum’s new membership strategy. The project took place in the Grade I listed Waterhouse Building on the central axis of the Natural History Museum’s primary frontage, works to the towers on the 2nd and 3rd floors are being developed concurrently.

 

The remodelling and refurbishment works on this project include the Welcoming Reception lobby, a restaurant, kitchen and wash up areas, a bar and lounge, informal study space and reading room and events space, new WC and passenger lift and a new environmentally controlled storage room to house a Botany Specimen Collection.

 

Access to the spaces is via the second floor of Hintze Hall with some of the works undertaken above areas frequented by both visitors and staff, which remained occupied during the works. Consultation was required with key stakeholders to identify works that needed to be carried out outside opening hours (including working around evening events) and identification of temporary works or closure of any adjacent areas.
