RICS National Museums & Heritage Award for Excellence
RICS Conservation Award
Gulbenkian Prize for Museums & Galleries (Finalist)
Kew Palace was George III’s private retreat in Kew Gardens and originally served as a home to George II’s daughters and school for the future king. We undertook the final phase of an intensive, ten year long restoration programme to reopen the Scheduled Monument to the public.
Our award winning scheme focused on a new presentation of the historic interiors, allowing the second floor rooms, once the province of the young princesses, to be open to the public for the first time. External repairs to the building’s masonry and joinery and accessibility improvements included a new timber clad lift.
