Garden Museum is hosted in the former St. Mary’s church, located at Lambeth Palace Road in London. In October 2007 London based Dow Jones Architects won the competition for the design of a new interior.
The project consist of a two-storey passage, that the architects called the Belvedere. The construction wraps around the aisles of the historic interior and houses both the temporary gallery at the ground floor and the permanent collection at the second level.
Very interesting aspect of the design is the environmentally friendly, carbon-negative material called Euban. Pre-fabricated structural timber panels are also very quick to build with. And what is more, note how the texture and colour of unfinished timber compliments the existing limestone walls.
