Kensington Palace Pigott Galleries Refurbishment

The brief for this project was to refurbish a suite of rooms and a staircase to create a gallery dedicated to the display of Royal dress, for Historic Royal Palaces.
Kensington Palace has been a Royal residence since the 17th Century, with substantial expansion by King William & Queen Mary and then Queen Anne by Sir Christopher Wren, including this suite of rooms. The building is Grade I listed and a Scheduled Monument.

Client: Historic Royal Palaces

This project started as a feasibility study to assess people-flow through this area of the Palace with various scenarios to improve the flow and visitor experience whilst maintaining safety for staff and visitors at all times.

The works then involved the refurbishment of a suite of rooms and a staircase with new lighting, strengthening floors to suit new exhibition cases, minor alterations and redecoration to create a flexible gallery space for changing exhibitions.
