We are delighted to announce that the Science Museum Smith Centre has been shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2021. The awards, created by the Architects' Journal, recognise "well-designed, sustainable projects and promote material and structural reuse in the built environment."
The Smith Centre was created by HAT Projects from a series of existing disused 19th and early 20th century structures that were previously unconnected to the Museum, neglected and semi-derelict in parts, we successfully transformed them into a generous and inviting series of spaces for events as well as informal use by the Museum's patrons and trustees - well integrated into the Museum, and with a distinctive, salon-like character.
Included in the Cultural and Religious Buildings category, the winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony on 24th February. The full shortlist is available here.
