Duggan Morris has been appointed to design a new events space at the Science Museum in South Kensington

The practice saw off competition from Alison Brooks Architects, RCKa, Originate and Wright & Wright to win the high-profile job.

The scheme will create a dedicated two-floor events space at the top of the museum while also providing views out over the capital.

The two levels are currently home to the Medicine Galleries which are relocating to the museum’s first floor under £24 million plans drawn up by Wilkinson Eyre.

The Science Museum’s commercial director Michelle Lockhart, commented: ‘’We are delighted with the quality of the architects’ submissions. Duggan Morris’ proposal creates a beautiful space, well-suited to our high profile clients.’

The competition is the latest to emerge from the Science Museum’s £60 million regeneration masterplan which also includes a mathematics gallery by Zaha Hadid Architects, an interactive gallery by Muf and a new entrance by HAT Projects.

The first scheme in the masterplan – a library and research centre by Coffey Architects – completed in March.

The new space is set to open in 2018.
