The new Members’ Room has just been opened at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Architects at Carmody Groarke have converted the gallery on the top floor of Aston Webb’s Grade I Listed 1909 wing into a new dedicated space for V&A Members.

The design has subtly restored and retained the existing spatial or detail character of the space and where appropriate reinvented architectural features including lighting and furniture.

Wates Construction has been awarded the contract to build the Victoria and Albert Museum’s (V&A’s) Exhibition Road Project, designed by architects AL_A.

Forming part of the Museum’s ‘FuturePlan’, the major development works will provide a large column free underground exhibition gallery, transforming the way the Museum presents its internationally renowned exhibitions. An open courtyard and improved entrance into the Museum will be also be created at street level set within the beautiful, historic facades of the V&A’s Grade I listed building. The new courtyard will house a café and be used for installations and events.

Construction on the project is due to commence later this month, with completion scheduled for the end of 2016.

Richard Shroll, Business Unit Director, Wates Construction London and Kent, commented: “The V&A’s ambitious development plans will significantly enhance the visitor experience of what is already a renowned cultural institution, both nationally and internationally. It is an exciting time as we prepare to embark on our role as main contractor and we are working in close partnership with the V&A to ensure that the scheme delivers on their vision for the project, whilst maintaining an environment in which the Museum can remain fully open to the public.”

A V&A spokesperson added: "Wates have put together a very strong team to deliver this crucial project for the V&A's future development. They have demonstrated their commitment and ability to deliver to the exceptionally high standards we work to on our capital projects, and we look forward to realising this exciting project with them over the next 3 years."
