Tony Fretton Architects: V&A Design Studies

Projects by Tony Fretton Architects include the British Embassy in Warsaw, and the Lisson Gallery and Camden Arts Centre in London. Fuglsang Kunstmuseum in Denmark, the practice’s most significant building for the display of art, was shortlisted for the 2009 Stirling Prize

The existing screened entrance opens into a courtyard that is an extension of the new landscaped public space of Exhibition Road. A colonnade around the courtyard provides a south-facing outdoor café and a covered entrance to the museum and the Sackler Centre. The entrance from Exhibition Road leads to the heart of the museum in a way that is easily understood, but preserves the quality of discovery that is intrinsic to the V&A.
