This publication details the history of the Museum of the Home and Wright & Wright's award-winning, ecologically-minded design project for its current site and buildings. A community-centric scheme, it stemmed from a holistic redefinition of exhibition, storage and community spaces.
With a remarkable collection telling the story of British domestic life housed in a set of richly atmospheric 18th century almshouses, the Museum of the Home is an institution of national significance. The remodeling of the existing building doubled the publicly accessible areas, created 80% more exhibition space and ameliorated the building’s deterioration, with no commensurate increase in energy consumption or the costly carbon count associated with a new build.
