A Framework for Horniman

Developing a vision for the future of the Museum and Gardens


In January 2019, after an open call for architects to submit their proposals, Studio Egret West were appointed as lead designers to work closely with the Horniman Project Team to develop a vision for the future of the Museum and Gardens. Our brief was to review the entire estate in order to enhance the visitor experience, making it more accessible for everyone alongside developing more income-generating opportunities.

As part of our community consultation approach, we created a film that captures our ambitions to deliver greater social and environmental impact by maximising the Horniman’s position as London’s only museum where nature and culture can be seen side by side, responding to the Horniman’s team mission: ‘ The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.’’
