We were appointed by Historic Royal Palaces to assist with the re-presentation of Kensington Palace, its landscape and its relationship to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.

 

From the instigation of the project in 2006 we worked with an in-house team to develop a feasibility study and concept designs for the re-presentation of the Palace. Our work examined visitor access, orientation and development of a visitor hub leading to narrative routes within the palace.

 

We re-examined the historic relationship of the Palace to Kensington Gardens and we proposed re-orientating the entrance sequence to make better connections with the gardens and to facilitate level access.

 

​The supporting accommodation was rearranged to improve the archive and staff facilities. Our work was incorporated into a successful application for Heritage Lottery Funding.
