The V&A has chosen Haworth Topkins to do the design work on converting their Blythe Road facility into a study centre.
The scheme involves the conversion of the grade II listed storage building on Blythe Road, W14, into a textile and fashion study and conservation centre, which would also provide improved storage for their collection of 104,000 textiles, a public study room and a textile conservation studio.
A key part of the project will also be to reinstate the original entrance to the building and create a welcoming and fully accessible visitor experience. The project aims to create a “world-class and unrivalled centre of curatorial, conservation and research activity”.
