David Chipperfield Architects appointed by Royal Academy of Arts for 6 Burlington Gardens, London
David Chipperfield Architects have been appointed to redevelop and refurbish the Royal Academy of Arts’ building at 6 Burlington Gardens, one of the most significant High Victorian buildings in central London.
Royal Academy of Arts North Elevation : David Chipperfield Architects
Designed by Sir James Pennethorne for the University of London in the 1860s, 6 Burlington Gardens has been part of the Royal Academy estate since 2000 and currently functions largely as a temporary venue. The building is situated to the rear of the Royal Academy's Burlington House headquarters on Piccadilly.
The project will provide the Royal Academy with new exhibition space for contemporary art shows, education facilities including a new 250 seat auditorium, shops, and a restaurant, and also allow all Royal Academy staff to be accommodated on site for the first time.
This is not the first time David Chipperfield Architects have made design proposals for the building, having previously done so during its occupation by the Museum of Mankind in the 1980s.
David Chipperfield Architects have already begun a feasibility study for the project, which will be completed in September. The project is scheduled to complete in 2012.
