DRDH Architects: Gallery, London Metropolitan School of Architecture

DRDH Architects: Gallery, London Metropolitan School of Architecture

This gallery was no doubt a fraught project for DRDH Architects. With only 27 days of construction time and £3,500 to spend, the practice also had to impress the tutors at London Metropolitan University’s architecture school. It’s a project of studied modesty – a felt-lined piece of furniture divides the room into an entrance lobby, two galleries and a chair store. Display boards are clad in felt or birch-faced plywood, and steel shelves at low level conceal existing heating installations and form a seat or display area. The project is a modest and warm place for exhibitions, lectures and talks.
