Selwyn Goldsmith Universal Design Award winner

We are pleased to have been awarded one of only two Selwyn Goldsmith Universal Design Awards this year, from the Civic Trust Awards for our project at Ely Museum.

This is so rewarding for us, as universal design - which means making spaces that are inclusive and welcoming to everyone and which allow all users to have an equal experience, no matter their physical or neurological needs, their age or their background, is central to our design ethic. We put a lot of work into making the user journey for different user groups as seamless as possible.

Within Ely Museum - a quite cramped Grade 2 listed building - we worked with our fantastic long-term access collaborator Tom Lister to make the building truly accessible for the first time. We were really glad that the interpretation designers Simon Leach and David Sudlow were equally committed to genuine accessibility.
