The Science Museum in South Kensington, London, has revealed that it will be launching a brand new multi-functional events space to the market in January 2019. The yet unnamed venue has been four years in the planning and will enhance the museum’s already events offering.
The new events space is situated on levels four and five of the Science Museum and will be available for both daytime and evening hire for capacities of up to 400 for dinners and conferences and 450 for receptions. One of the features of the new space will be a panoramic window on level five offering views of London.
This, along with many other striking and innovative design features are the work of London-based, RIBA-registered architects, Mary Duggan Architects. Duggan said: “We are delighted to be working on this project for a world-renowned institution. The project design is intended to reflect the ethos of the museum and provide an adaptable interior to accommodate a diverse range of events, but one with a clear identity.”
Jonathan Newby, deputy director of the Museum says: “This project will not only enable us to reach new segments of the events industry but it will also help the Science Museum Group to deliver its very ambitious development plans and maintain its position as a world-leading cultural organisation. With the addition of these stunning and flexible new events spaces to our already iconic object-rich galleries and hands-on offers, the Science Museum can ensure our events guests will have as unforgettable and inspiring an experience as our visitors.”
Ben Lheureux, head of catering & events at the Science Museum, says: “We are thrilled to reveal the plans for our brand new, dedicated events space, which is due to open for hire from January 2019. We recognise the importance of investing in and advancing our offer to ensure we continue to meet the needs of the ever-evolving industry, which is why we are excited to bring this plan to fruition.
