London Metropolitan University School of Architecture Gallery
Unassuming, felt-lined gallery and exhibition space for an architecture school in London
A project of studied modesty – a felt-lined piece of furniture divides the room into an entrance lobby, two galleries and a chair store. Display boards are clad in felt or birch-faced plywood, and steel shelves at low level conceal existing heating installations and form a seat or display area.
The project is a modest and warm place for exhibitions, lectures and talks.
With only 27 days of construction time and £3,500 to spend, the practice had to impress the tutors at London Metropolitan University’s architecture school.
