“I’m so delighted with the new space, as is everyone who comes in.”  - Dr Joanna Selbourne, Courtauld Gallery Curator

DESCRIPTION

Within the magnificent Grade I listed Somerset House, designed by Sir William Chambers, the brief was to transform and refurbish the historic Prints & Drawings Study Room. The works of Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Cézanne, and Turner are all housed here. Not surprisingly, coming up with lighting and display solutions was a real pleasure. The project involved opening up the study’s blocked ocular windows and increasing overall security and supervision.
