Design Museum Sale
The former 1950s warehouse building which is the current home of the Design Museum at Shad Thames, Butlers Wharf is up for sale through Cushman & Wakefield. The Design Museum has occupied the building since 1989. Exhibitions will continue at the site until its new home at the former Commonwealth Institute opens in 2014.
The sale is the result of the Design Museum’s plans to relocate to the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington. The move will give the Design Museum three times more space to show a wide range of exhibitions and showcase its collection. The ambition is to create the world’s leading design museum. The Conran Foundation currently owns the lease of the Shad Thames building and has pledged to donate the proceeds from the sale of the lease to the Design Museum’s capital project.
Leading designer John Pawson will convert the interior of the Commonwealth Institute building to create a new home for the Design Museum. The scheme for the surrounding development designed by Rem Koolhaass’s OMA was granted planning permission in July 2010.
