The sensitive extension of one of the world’s most prestigious museums required expert planning and heritage advice.

That’s why the British Museum turned to Montagu Evans. We advised on a c. 20,000 sqm extension to the Grade I listed museum in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area.

Montagu Evans assisted in all aspects of planning consultancy to realise the proposals which involved demolition of later parts of the building, and the construction of a bespoke wing, combining multiple basement storage levels, a loading bay and lift for object movement, a temporary exhibition facility to the international standards, and science and conservation studios and laboratories.

The architects were Rogers Stirk Harbour, and the design is for a striking contemporary building, using steel, stone and glass, immediately abutting the Burnet wing of the Museum.
