The Garden Museum by Dow Jones Architects

Dow Jones Architects renovated the Garden Museum housed in the old church of St. Mary at Lambeth, London.

While the historic structure remains untouched, the museum welcome visitors to a newly designed interior with a sequence of individual spaces for exhibitions, the permanent collection, education, café and shop.

The architect projected a free standing timber structure that fits into the existing church like an unexpected modernist puzzle box. The colors of the wood match the stone walls, camouflaging the just-arrived nature of the construction.

  1. While I’m usually not into such remodeling, I actually love what they’ve done with the place. The colors work really well and the entire structure somehow doesn’t feel out-of-place. Now that’s quite an achievement. Great job!
