St Bride’s Church
Wright & Wright are designing the permanent exhibition about Wren, which will be in the crypt as part of the Inspire Legacy Project.
St Bride’s is the tallest of Sir Christopher Wren’s City churches. Due to its location in Fleet Street, it has a long association with journalists and newspapers. The church is a distinctive sight on London's skyline and is clearly visible from a number of locations.
On our appointment to the project, David Dewing, Director of the Geffrye Museum, said:
“Wright & Wright Architects are an excellent choice for the museum; they have a strong record of award-winning work with heritage buildings, sensitive sites and complex problems. They are listeners and have the interests of visitors, users and the general public at heart. We are looking forward to working in partnership with our local and wider communities”.
Work is now progressing towards the HLF Stage 1 application.
The main phase of the new library project started on site in June 2014. The first two enabling works packages to transform the Buckler Library and to extend out into the Longwall Quadrangle were completed earlier this year.
