Shortlisted in the EXPERIENCING CULTURE category
The art market in London has enjoyed continued growth over the last five years, and there are now more than 250 galleries established in the capital’s West End.

Cromwell Place is a first-of-its-kind arts space and membership model, with rentable exhibition space, office space, viewing rooms and art storage.

Our key moves involved sensitively restoring the existing Grade-II listed buildings to provide thirteen gallery spaces that celebrate
the period features throughout. We then deftly introduced new
interventions including viewing rooms, secure and climate-controlled
underground art storage.
