V&A Silver Gallery

During the project the columns were discovered inside false walls, then the maiolica tiles ...

An enfilade of seven galleries, which formed the original core of the Museum building, required complete refurbishment. Our award-winning solution reinstated the original decorative scheme based on the evidence of archive photographs and long lost fragments. Modern facilities are now incorporated into Victorian-style features. For example, a new heating system is concealed within a continuous bracketed dado, and a new lighting system was incorporated in replicas of the original ‘gasolier’ fittings.

The showcases are the best of modern all-glass all-fibreoptic technology. They contain the national collection of silver, with masterpieces ranging from the 14th century up to the present day. All graphics were designed, including pick-up label cards. There is an interactivity area including an object handling table and computer database.
